The design of this house was generated in response to the view – a strength and a constraint. The defining quality of the site was its lakeside frontage, which presents a continually changing view as light interacts with water and sky. The brief was to design a place that would be comfortable through the extremes of Ballarat winters and summers.

They wanted a house for their family of four, an ability for both parents to work from home, a place to entertain and a place that would be comfortable through the extremes of Ballarat winters and summers.
