Construction is from a strict palette of materials, thick concrete walls, cement render, aluminium louvres, glass and tasmanian blackwood timber, milled from the property. The high courtyard high walls and the main structures create a sense of permanence through seasons and time, and provide the perfect canvas for the ever-changing play of light and shadow.
