TASMAN: HOUSE ON THE HILLS
This high-end architectural farmhouse currently under construction on the Tasman Hills, is a striking and functional home that is everything the owners could have asked for. It is a modern two-storey home with a full height atrium with exposed timber. With this house, it is truly something of sophisticated scale, with finishing touches carefully considered to ensure warmth and character throughout.
Architecturally designed by Wild Rooster and Arthouse Architecture, this 1200m2 house was commissioned based on the strength of the residential building reputation of Scott Construction and the known capabilities of our staff.
This project would be our largest architectural house build with six bedrooms each with an ensuite. The home also has a media room, office, gymnasium, extensive landscaping includes pools and ponds, and a plywood-lined garage.
This impressive home will be completed in late 2015 after a dedicated team of approximately seven staff and sub-trades have worked on the project each day since its commencement.
Due to the scale of the project and the planning that needed, there were certain aspects of the design that were not completed at the start of the contract works, something which is not common. To overcome this, Scott Construction’s on-site team planned the construction in such a way to allow the works to progress smoothly while decisions were still being made on the design.
This will undoubtedly result in the client celebrating the completion of this architecturally designed home that meets all of their dreams and expectations.
Structurally engineered and constructed of a mix of cedar weatherboards, Hebel Cavity system and exposed rafter and soffits, and with exposed timber beams and posts inside, the design has left no detail unconsidered.
The high level of home automation in this project includes a fully engineered ventilation system and an automated electrical lighting system throughout the house, as well as a security system and underfloor heating. The double glazing is thermally broken to allow for extra insulation.
