An Undulating Home near Kyneton, Australia

By • May 19, 2017

Lauriston House is an impressive contemporary construction completed in 2016 by the Australian architectural firm Seeley Architects, who are based in Torquay. The project, which serves as a private residence, is located near Kyneton, in the state of Victoria, Australia, and covers an area of 4,090 square feet, or 380 square meters.

Its most striking feature is its roof, an undulating structure that crowns the entirety of the building, which is itself formed, almost completely, by clear glass walls. In this way, the home intends to reflect the rolling hills and rows of olive trees that dot the landscape which surrounds it, creating an interesting dialogue with its setting. Continuing this same dialogue, local materials were used in order to build the home, such as Messmate timber for the linings of the ceiling and the planks that comprise its floors and French pattern bluestone similar to that used on the colonial footpaths of Piper Street in nearby Kyneton.

Its interior is spacious and strong in character, with the richness of the timber used on its floors and a series of decorative accessories that serve to make this a true home. The glass walls serve to allow both natural light and vistas of the exterior to enter the interior of the home.
