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.


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.
