Bower Architecture has designed Bellbird House in Blackburn, Australia.
This project is the result of a wonderful collaborative relationship between architect, builder and client – each respectful of the other’s expertise. The building team treated each detail with craft and care, resulting in a meticulous outcome. Landscape designer Sam Cox created a whimsical and meandering garden featuring an abundance of native grasses while owners Cameron and Nicole have planted over 1,400 indigenous plants and installed a pond to encourage wildlife back to the site.
Bellbird House is a peaceful sanctuary in a unique suburban bushland setting where a family can connect with the natural environment. A vast selection of 41 existing trees was preserved on the site and the scale, form and visual connectivity of the home respond directly to them – suffusing the home with vegetation.
"We acknowledge the Wurrundjeri people, Traditional Custodians of the land upon which this project is sited," added Bower Architecture.
