The Kyneton House is defined by its sense of singularity; both as an architectural element within its local context and in the spatial qualities of each room within.
The design process began with a single wall gesture, a repeating brickwork cup. This element was arranged to define the boundaries of the home and of the individual rooms, with the recess of each providing a nesting place for seating, kitchen, study etc. Always returning inwards, this repeating motif formed a thickness to the home’s exterior, providing a deepened reveal to every opening.
The celebration of material texture is balanced with the precisely folded, ceiling voids that define and light each of the spaces in the home.
Our ambition for the house is for it to act as a reference point to the passing of time, becoming a canvas for the change of light and the theatre of seasonal change occurring outside.
