Blackbutt flooring, concrete and glass have
been used to allow the home to sit easily
within its natural environment.
The custom-made concrete blocks used
to build it are also sympathetic to the area’s
rich heritage, with its many sandstone
houses. “I wanted the home to have a
sense of place and use simple, sustainable
materials that would allow it to age
gracef ully,” adds Corinne.
“It was really important that the home
fit with its surroundings, but I also wanted
it to be flooded with air and light. I wanted
to make the most of every angle and allow
breeze to flow through it.”
As for her family enjoying the home,
Corinne says it comes to life when fi lled
with friends, and they love to entertain.
“We held my eldest daughter’s 21st
birthday party here and it was wonderful
the home really does transform itself for
functions, it’s made for entertaining.
“I probably took a few more risks with
this home than I would have done for a
client, but they paid off.”
