Kyneton House

The site of an old rundown tennis court created a unique opportunity for a contemporary home in the historic town of Kyneton. The tennis court had been subdivided off from the property of a Victorian-era home and offered the new clients the best of both worlds: a short walk to the heart of town, yet close to the Campaspe River, surrounded by established trees and parkland. It also meant the chance to build a modern home without the heritage constraints found elsewhere in the town.

The existing site cut into the hillside helped determine the location for the new home. The services, sleeping and living zones of the house are conceived as separate wings, arranged on site to maximise light and view access. Both the services and sleeping wings are constructed out of concrete blockwork, anchoring the home to the site. The solid elements bookend a light-weight timber and glass living pavilion, providing privacy and protection where it's needed and a connection to the views and landscape where it's desired.
