DRAGONFLY HOUSE

TERRANORA, NSW

 

Situated on a sloping site in the heart of Vista Terranora, 5 Black Myrtle Court draws inspiration from rural Australian themes. Masonry walls anchor the floating structure to the ground and also rise from the ground to provide privacy to the occupants where needed.

The structure is nestled into the site and follows the contours, so as to provide a building that is part of the hill. The cranked plan offers unique views from the living room and each of the four bedrooms. The courtyard provides a place to have a fire and reprieve from the prevailing winds.
