Hawk’s Nest is a studio and home tucked away in a beautiful mountain setting. It was created for a Parisian sculptor who felt a pull to the site, which began as simply a limestone quarry out in the middle of nowhere, boasting a view of the Potomac River. The goal of this home is to create something beautiful that at once contrasted against the beauty of the natural environment around it, and the result is a modern, squared-off home that stands out in a beautiful way amongst the nature around it.

    The Hawk’s Nest is a glass and wood structure that is made primarily out of durable steel. The grid of the steel columns is used to break up the space and give a framed view out into the nature around it. There are beautiful pieces of ipe wood that naturally age as time goes by which offers privacy in the home and allows for a nice contrast of material as well. There are balconies that extend out of the interior area and bridges that allow travel to and from the different parts of the home. The Hawk’s Nest is designed to put you up close and personal with nature and provides large, expansive windows for you to gaze out of that will blur the lines of indoors and outdoors. It is ideal for those that want to create in their homes and have a place to hang up their art at the same time. Learn more here.

    Peka Peka House

    The Peka Peka House is an ultra modern home that sits in a traditionally beautiful landscape on Kapiti Island. This house sits atop a beautiful hilltop area that overlooks its surroundings and provides a clear view of all there is to see with its large, floor to ceiling windows. It’s build with its coastal environment in mind as well as sheer modernism. The home consists of three rectangular areas that combine to create the lavish contemporary style.


    FSY House

    Built to bring modern beauty into a natural space, the FSY House is the house for you to bring your love of contemporary outdoors into a space that contrasts it beautifully in its own way. Surrounded totally by a lagoon for natural aesthetic as well as a golf course for a pleasurable weekend activity and a bit of manmade beauty, the FSY House features a lush Buenos Aires landscape that meshes with the concrete exterior of the home in a way you might not expect.


    Photographer’s House

    Though nestled in the countryside, the Photographer’s House sits along a main road, one that allows you easy access to important locations. Surrounding the home is a beautiful collection of houses that stand in a picturesque way side by side, a forest stemming out from these houses to fill in the gaps with natural beauty. This home is a structure that is large in size and made out of mortar and galvanized iron plate that offers a slight, warm bit of shining light. Full of character, it stands out among the other nearby houses and looks dashing beside the accompanying shrine. The building is often used by photographers who want to turn it into a gallery as well as a dwelling; a place where both passions for their art and passions for their living state can live in harmony. Because of this, instead of having a dedicated space for each function of the house, there is an open floor plan that allows you to live in harmony with your work.


    House At Big hill

    House at Big Hill is one of the most recent projects to be undertaken near the Victoria’s Great Ocean Road. It is characterized by its minimalistic design and simplistic form. This home is semi-recessed into the slopes around it and made in a triangular shape that invites lovers of modern architecture to take a peek inside. Its orientation and style are designed to allow those inside to better enjoy the 180-degree views of the Lorne and Airey’s Inlet and Bass Straight with plenty of naturally grown and mature eucalyptuses to peer through.
