Mending Wall

Posted on Tue, 22 May 2012 by midcenturyjo

Mimicking the ancient rocks of the Blue Mountains is a house of concrete block, timber and stone left to weather. It rises like a monolith or a rocky outcrop from the sheep paddocks providing shelter from the elements, a place to retreat. The fireplace is central to the idea of hearth and home, protection and warmth. “Mending Wall” (from a line in a Frost poem) is by Australian firm BVN Architecture via World Buildings Directory.

What a stunning exterior – and I love the upper-level gallery/library concept. Not only is the home itself grand, but the photography is superb. Thanks for this one!
