Paul Uhlmann Architects

Lot 4 - Vista Terranora Design Gallery
Move in this summer! 

With extensive views stretching over the Tweed Valley across to the Kingscliff region and ocean, this acreage block inspired a contemporary, rural architectural approach. A natural grove of trees has been preserved on the site which provides a picturesque foreground to the valley beyond. The house was designed to step down with the gently sloping natural landscape, allowing all dominant living spaces and bedrooms to take advantage of the surrounding views. 
The stepped building design further allows for an ease of connection to the landscape, and a central roof opening enables northern light to enter the kitchen area and living spaces beyond. Privacy from the neighbouring blocks above has been maintained through the spatial planning of the house and the positioning of windows.
