Set amongst the rolling valleys of the Karaka rural environment, this modern house and landscaping encapsulates the site and ecology of the location. For the visitor, this is both a physical and visual experience. Upon entry, a dry river bed underpins the entrance-way; connecting nature to the built form. The surrounding natural systems at play. Organic shapes and layered native planting then ease the strong architectural forms of the house seamlessly into the farmland views beyond.
