Edition Office designed Federal House to be both a peaceful sanctuary for its clients and a sculptural object dug into a slope in the hilly landscape.
The project establishes a relationship between place and object. A reverberation of the settler colonial homestead typology, the home carries verandah DNA into a tightly controlled envelope allowing modestly scaled interiors to expand into a covered outdoor living space.
A subterranean pool adjoins to a garden void at the heart of the home, framing views to the valleys and hinterland horizon beyond.
