Lake Crackenback house #1
This was our first major project in the Snowy Mountains region, south of Canberra.
Creating a big ‘wow factor’ was one of the main criteria, and we like to think we achieved that.
We approached this house as if it were a sculpted object. It had to be a beautiful object that would look good from all angles if it were a sculpture sitting on your desk.
The building had to be thoroughly engineered for the high winds and extreme temperatures experienced at the site.
The house has 2 bedrooms and a loft upstairs, and a self contained one-bedroom apartment downstairs. Both areas have a cast concrete Japanese style hot tub, and we designed the custom shower system specifically for the apartment. The floors are polished concrete with in-slab hydronic heating.
Materials are steel, granite, polished concrete, timber and copper.
