Boneo Country House by John Wardle Architects

John Wardle Architects designed this stunning contemporary country residence located in Melbourne, Australia, in 2017. Take a look at the complete story after the jump.

From the architects: The Boneo Country house is located atop sloping farmland with expansive views stretching out over Bass Strait and beyond. An existing house on the property has been completely reimagined as part of a larger schema for the site. A new timber screen acts like a hedge to define a protected courtyard space – a cultivated garden within the broader rolling hills of the Mornington Peninsula landscape. The new house branches from the old across the slope, unfolding to engage with expansive views stretching over Bass Strait and Port Phillip Bay. A skin of copper on the sides of the house is taut and crisply defining. It is sliced open to frame the views that have been divined from the site.
