This modern black and white slope house is part of the 29 lots that were built in an area in Brisbane, Australia by Base Architecture. The design concept was building a house that reflects its protected wooded surrounding yet exuding its own character. The house is firmly planted at the slope of the hill. A concrete form with finish that reflects the charred timber in its internal finish that also is used as a pool acts as a “base” of the building. Moreover, large stones are used to cover the front side of the house, further blending the entire building in its environment.
The interior as a whole was also built to mimic the vegetation with many natural elements. The living room and kitchen feature wooden door with warmth color and patterns. Wooden elements also are used throughout other parts of the interiors like bedroom and bathroom. Moreover, the large glass wall at the pool connects the interior and the exterior of this black and white slope house, visually and perceptively. There, an interior swimming pool was created and was designed with large glass wall enclosure. There, the privacy is protected by a screen look facade decoration that distract views from the street. this white front facade decoration looks wonderful from the outside and becomes a beautiful contracting color to the black wooden wall.
For this home, most part of about 90% of the construction was for the upper ground level. Although this house, the “Stonehawke House” seems to be a three levels house but this top level is at the same level to the natural ground due to the sloping terrain. And, as for the rear side of the house that faces the woods, a grassed area was created as a playground for the kids and aesthetically to blend the house with the natural boulders and the bush setting more to the rear.
