Residential completed 2016

Muliyamba means hill home to the original Bundjalung people. The site is characterised by undulating pastures sloping gently into a dammed water course. A western backdrop of tall eucalypt forest provides protection from harsh summer sun and cold winter winds but also represents a significant bushfire hazard.The site strategy was to nestle the home high on the site backing up to the forest then opening up extensively to the rural landscape panorama. The long and low horizontal form of the building stretches out into the landscape, opening to reveal sheltered living spaces and to welcome in views and winter sunlight.
