Forreston Residence

Recycled Building Materials

Located in the Forreston region of the Adelaide Hills this family home with its low pitch roof planes and suspended decking extends and floats over the rural landscape. Large north facing windows encapsulate the warming winter sun in the cooler months whilst the additional vine ready pergola will provide summer shading. The internal layout features a central living area that separates two wings, promoting private separation for an aging relative and a young family.

The building’s earthy colour palette along with its use of recycled timber tied in with a perished tree trunk compliments its surrounding landscape whilst providing some quirky interest.
