Highlands House
by Other Architects

Clinton Weaver

Highlands House offers a different experience of living in the landscape to that of the quintessential modern Australian house.
It is loose-fit rather than functionalist, soft and inviting rather than hard-edged, its environmental performance features integrated rather than expressed. The house sits quietly in its place within an established garden.

Daily life unfolds within a single large room that accommodates both social and sleeping spaces. With few dividing walls and partitions, the house’s interior is demarcated through the placement of furnishings and artworks, by carefully framed openings to the garden, and with a series of sculptural apertures to the sky.

This project has been longlisted in the rural house category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
