The Underground House at Steels Creek

Client: Edd and Amanda Williams, Grand Design Australia

When Edd and Amanda Williams were burnt out by the Black Saturday bushfires, they decided to fire proof their replacement home by burying it into a hill. They commissioned me to produce 12 quadrant windows for the front facade of the house in order to bring some of the bush colours into its’ interior. I designed a sequence of colours, held within a repeating leaf motif and representing the cycle of the seasons. The house and its’ windows were featured on Grand Design Australia in 2012.
