Archier Architectdesignsdreamhome in the form of View House – a two-storey home located in Sandy Bay, Tasmania. View House – taking its name from the breathtaking views of Hobart – was designed by Chris Haddad for his parents with the intention of allowing them to age in place. View House is a construction of uniquematerials from Artedomus and a rich colour palette, forming a home of dynamic and contrasting forms.
Situated on a suburban block surrounded by bushland, the brief was to craft a dreamhome that is inviting, warm and comfortable. Alongside Artedomus, Archier Architectdesignsdreamhome View House with attention paid to materiality, interior design and architecture. The home needed to be functional without compromising on aesthetic or material quality, making Artedomus the natural partnership choice.
Archier ArchitectDesignsDreamHome in Tasmania, paying special attention to the way light moves through the space, bringing life to the finishes and surfaces throughout. The home is buried deep into the Hobart hillside and the home’s aesthetic replicates this experience. The courtyard spaces bring light down into the house and lift the spaces upwards. During construction of the courtyard space, a rock from beneath the ground could not be moved: the courtyard was then turned into a fern garden, with the immovable rock on display, representing the land below the surface and as a visual connection to the mountains nearby.
The black brick façade stands as an imposing street presence, but this is broken up with the use of terracotta in the front of the home and throughout the interior spaces. Terracotta is embraced throughout the house, adding colour and warmth that bounces off the timber ceiling. The Terracotta tiles – Cotto Manetti Arrotato Da Crudo (Rustic) from Artedomus – contrasts against the textured clay tiles in the lobby – INAX Homura Tiles, Japanese tiles also from Artedomus.
