East Trentham House

Set in the Australian town for which it's named, the East Trentham House strikes a delicate balance between rustic charm and cool modernism. The exterior of the home is a simple monotone gray so as to not clash with the colors of the European garden, and wooden pergolas soften its form on either side. Inside, touches like hand-glazed bathroom wall tiles, scraped timber floors, and custom cabinetry lend it a welcoming feel fitting for its rural setting. The property is finished off with a simple darkly-clad barn that serves as a foil for the surrounding foliage.

  • VMS House

    Built to accentuate its unusual triangular plot, the VMS House takes advantage of its layout to provide natural light throughout the day. The home's two bedrooms sit off one side to better capture the morning sunlight, while the open kitchen, living, and dining areas receive evening light through their large windows. Above the latter lies a library, reached via a cantilevered staircase made from rusted steel. Structural steel protrudes through the building's facade, providing an interesting contrast with the rough granite that clads the exterior of the ground floor.

  • The Dell House

    Built on a site with slopes on every side, The Dell House uses a cross-like formation to help divide public areas from private. On the ground level, you'll find the kitchen, dining room, living area, and entrance, while upstairs you find four bedrooms, with a private balcony off the master. The different areas are further defined by their exterior coverings, with a mix of brick, timber, and slate shingles blending harmoniously with the surrounding woods.
