Stalking in the snow

Posted on Mon, 4 Jul 2011 by midcenturyjo

Winter here in Australia, a land more often associated with sun and surf not winter and snow. Today I’m stalking in the high country of Victoria and the resort village of Dinner Plain. Welcome to Under the Moonlight designed by Giovanni D’Ambrosio. It’s a contemporary (and expensive) take on the traditional cattlemen’s huts of the area.

“Perched on the edge of an alpine reserve in Dinner Plain Village, part of the highest approved freehold land in Australia, the home is located just 10 minutes from down hill skiing at Mount Hotham. Featuring extensive 8 x 9 sq metre glass panels, sweeping alpine views are drawn in to the interior of the home, which also features a 20 tonne cantilevered fire place made of local stone.”

Forget the stone fireplace look at the bathroom! A divan perched beside the spa. Dark and decadent. This is definitely a bachelor’s pad in the snow, no? A sexy private après-ski lair. Glühwein anyone? Link here while it lasts.

spectacular designs and concept

Looks like a doctor's surgery from outside. Would be sickly hot (or dark) inside in the summer. Doesn't look the slightest bit heat efficient or spacially efficient. Hope it didn't cost as much as i expect it did. I'm not a fan at all.

this place is very cool no doubt but i would have appreciated more if plan and section were also available. that might have helped me getting a more cleared picture of function and circulation in this place.

Wow amazing….

I don't like the exterior architecture, but in interior and the landscape is very beautiful
