Taroona House

A sheltered south-facing site provided a challenge to create a sustainable and sunny home during Tasmania’s cooler months. North-facing clerestory windows draw sun into the building and contribute to the feeling of light and airy spaces. A connection to the natural bush setting is further enforced by the blurring of spaces through horizontal and vertical planes, as well as the use of a variety of natural materials.
