Another project of Wolveridge Architects that grabbed the 2011 Premier Award for Interior Design Excellence and Innovation is The Hill Plain House constructed at Victoria, Australia. This dream home is constructed ecologically and created using non-domestic materials in the most natural way. Close inspection of this modern home will reveal some haphazard openings, rugged exteriors and its entirety reminds us of the agricultural construction in the year 1970s.
The interiors of the modern architecture has been constructed based on solid materials finished with black while the great kitchen and bathroom design takes on flashy colors. The bathroom has yellow rubber that allows for great grip and underfoot comfort. The walls were lined utilizing full height sheets of mild steel. The incorporation of the large frameless window allows you to overlook the panoramic view of the grass and gum tree beyond.
The Hill Plain House is a low blackbutt timber home constructed with the combination of rugged materials such as timber, steel and concrete.
The interior design puts emphasis on craftsmanship while the dark interior demonstrates the relationship between the internal areas and the external areas specifically the landscape outside.
The most notable part of this house is the use of materials and lighting which in itself represented a confident interior design logic that has achieved regional identity and connection in a new and unparalleled way – which is according to the jury of the awards. Apart from the Premier Award for Interior Design Excellent and Innovation, The Hill Plain House also received the award for the Residential Design category.
In total, Wolveridge Architects grabbed three awards and three notable mentions during the 2011 Interior Design Awards at Docklands. The Hill Plain House became the judges’ and peers favorite among the contenders. Indeed, the design elements and layout are inspirational as it perfectly reinforces the juncture between the living spaces and the external environment without compromising one or the other.
Among the dream homes, this might as well be the best as it is composed of robust materials and is created with both functionality and agricultural elements in mind in order to connect it to the exterior. The architects have approached this project holistically thus creating the building’s unique identity in Australia but the sophisticated and elegant interior is a stand-alone.
In the construction, plaster is rarely visible and is painted black thus the entire house took on a monochromatic palette. After dusk, the characteristically soft nature of the interior is brought about by the low level of lighting and the large windows in the living room are clad with illuminated curtains.
