The design of the home and landscape is positioned on three levels to gradually step down and follow the lines of the naturally sloping site. The footprint is cleverly arranged around a number of courtyard spaces, breaking up the large 600 square metre house’s forms, to create smaller courtyard spaces to provide sheltered areas for various recreational use.
The low pitched roof forms long horizontal lines and its large overhangs allow the house to further nestle into its setting. Expansive glazing throughout enables the owners to enjoy stunning views from almost every space in the property.
Harp house is constructed predominately out of locally sourced schist stone, and complimented with smaller amounts of steel, concrete, glass and timber.
