Securing this massive 4000sqm block in Denmark
provided the perfect building base for these
empty-nesters from Perth.
The clients were seeking a tree-change yet still
wanted a modern and contemporary two-storey
home with a solar-passive design.
Robert Forgione and his team had to consider
the sloping level of the block, as well as keeping
the home within the building envelope and being
mindful of the area’s high risk of bushfire .
The style of the home is based on a warehouse
feel. The master bedroom forms a completely
separate wing that is connected to the main house
via a covered walkway, with a communal courtyard
connecting the two buildings.
The elevated design and seamless glass structure
enhance the spectacular natural views from both
levels. The views were also improved by keeping the
interior layout uncomplicated, with features like an
open-plan living area and floating staircase.
The use of natural products such as rough-sawn
timber cladding, local stone and recycled jetty
lumber from Esperance has resulted in
a progressive design that works in perfect
harmony with the natural beauty of Denmark.
