Plagued by harsh winds and a rural roadway, the Fish Creek House turns its environmental challenges into a key design feature. The structure consists of three blackened timber-clad pavilions, separated by a series of outdoor courtyards. On three sides, the home is shielded by a textured brick barrier that provides both privacy and protection. Internally, darkened concrete floors are mirrored by a black birch plywood ceiling, while ash-lined walls create a warm contrast. On the remaining wall to the north, a glazed facade opens up the interior to views of the rustic landscape provided by Wilsons Promontory National Park.
