Wentworth House by MHN Design Union:

“This project is a new house in Vaucluse on a steep heavily wooded site overlooking the harbour. The client has three young children so extensive accommodation was provided spread over five levels.

The architectural idea was to create a series of solid horizontal planes extending into the landscape with these elements contrasted by a vertical infill of dark timber boarding or glazing.

The overall effect is a clear distinction between the man made horizontal planes of the house with the vertical eucalypt tree trunks.”
