Kerstin Thompson Architects

Posted on Thu, 24 Jan 2013 by midcenturyjo

When architecture and its surrounding landscape combine magic happens. When a building addresses its site the experience of the space is heightened, enriched. A limited palette of materials, concrete flooring, blocks and timber accents are a counterfoil to that view, stunning glimpses through native trees to Bass Strait. The House at Big Hill by Melbourne based Kerstin Thompson Architects (KTA) draws the occupant through its dark, triangular space towards the vista while light and shadow cocoon and envelop the interiors.

That is an exotic design– what is strange is that the built-in simplicity doesn't make it any easier to match the pics with the rendering. There's such a sense of space, and a sense of echo!

Simply beautiful.

Missannethrope says:

While I appreciate the design, I could not possibly imagine living there. It's so dark, and the walls are so dreary!

I don't like the chiese rug…
