Airport Drive House
Simple childlike forms with a distinctly rural feel were chosen for this large family home on the outskirts of a provincial city.
The house faces due north to maximise the suns energy, and was built long and narrow so as to keep as much large lawn area for the family of growing rugby crazed boys.
The classic interiors though durable are indulgent and far less contemporary than the homes simple exterior, this is intentional and surprising. The solid Oak kitchen, painted hall panelling and decorative wallpapers were all chosen to take all the nocks and bruises children can bring, but to age with dignity and grace.
The gardens were planted again with opulence in mind, an abundance of flowers for picking, an orchard full of every delight the region can grow as well as a fully functioning kitchen garden are all features of this expansive property.
