The Elemental Home by SSD Studio is strictly that. Constructed from pure supplies and nestled in a hillside of the Dooralong Valley on the NSW Central Coast, it’s directly constituted of and dissolving into the weather round it. It’s precisely the best way house owners, Michael Heuchan and artist Belynda Henry envisioned it.
‘This home is one thing I’ve been designing in my head for a few years,’ says Michael, who has a background in development. ‘It was all the time my dream to create a house that showcased the uncooked components that encompass us from each day. A house that invited the encompassing mild and surroundings in.’
Michael constructed the entire home himself over three years, with the assistance of retired builder Greg Allen. Impressed by the materials-focussed structure of Shaun Lockyer, a restricted materials palette helped to attach the constructing’s many massive areas.
Expansive home windows combine the encompassing views into the structure, and that epic surroundings is enhanced by the sweeping volumes of the rooms. This panoramic glazing creates a floating impact within the dwelling areas, particularly the mezzanine stage!
‘Scale and top had been essential,’ says Belynda of the ultimate design. ‘It’s brutalist and trendy, but grand sufficient to sit down among the many tall gumtrees that encompass the constructing.’
To create a house of this scale, that might nonetheless complement and never compete with surrounding panorama, stone, timber and concrete grew to become the important thing pillars of the constructing palette. The ceiling is constituted of bushes grown, harvested and hand-milled by Michael into slats, whereas the pure gray and refined texture of off-form concrete anchors the remainder of the house. Color, texture and Belynda’s gorgeous work soften the monolithic materiality.
The result’s a grand, architectural house, that sits comfortably inside the chic valley, towering bushes and expansive views that envelope it. A dream!
