From the Architects:
This hill best home is a concrete expression of Armidale ’s special meeting of rural daily life and culture, “agri-culture”, a town with a university and a lot of other cultural institutions.
The clients seamlessly mix their flourishing agribusiness with their white collar occupations. Gentlemen farming. Their contemporary “Homestead” is situated at the peak of the property overseeing the well being of the cattle in the valley under.
The 1000 meter of altitude are felt outside with cold winter fog covering the valley, while inside the home is a refuge enhanced by strongly integrated passive solar layout principles. The sheds and barns are found remotely.
Maintaining nature intact, the grassy slopes of the hill proceed all the way up under the concrete platform. The slab and the corrugated steel skirt below, are a safety towards grass fires and conceal massive water tanks. The concrete and the tanks give ample thermal mass to stability the temperature extremes that higher nation encounters. The Interiors are an urbane and cultured refuge to a collection of art and indigenous artefacts collected in Africa and Asia. There is no location for whips, saddles and country type clichés.
