Located in Bedfordale, the site was part of a larger semi-rural property with clear views of the city. With a lower basement level cut and nestled into the hillside, the upper level of the structure stands proud of the surrounding landscape. The client had a very specific brief, focussed around a large basement for the storage of cars, their motorcycle collection and integrated workshop. The upper level contains all living spaces, with architectural features like frameless wrapping windows and a rammed earth wall as a central spine.
THE MOTUS ADVANTAGE
Motus were able to assist in coordinating consultants and liaisons with council to meet local requirements regarding fire and site maintenance. To avoid installing box gutters, a clever roof design strategically directed water away and down the hillside.
