Inspired by the Blue Mountains

Perched on the edge of a leafy lane at Blue Mountains, NSWm Australia, the linear composition of the Blackheath house presents an abstract facade of timber and steel to the street and creates carefully screened entry, central and rear courtyards to the home.
Designed by Sydney-based practice, Pearson Architecture. The streamlined industrial aesthetic references the corrugated iron of rural buildings, with walls extending into garden trellises that dissolve into the garden and mesh with the neighbourhood landscape. The hydronic heated concrete floors, water tank collection and reuse in the house, and carefully detailed building connections respond to the broad ranging climate conditions of the Blue Mountains.
Subdued hues of green and grey inspired by the forests of the surrounding mountains create contemplative interiors and framed views out to neighbouring gardens.
