Piermont project @ Ballarat, Australia

Shape Uniquely Built Sustainable House in Ballarat, Australia by Rachcoff Vella Architecture

Rachcoff Vella Architecture  designed this Piermont project, a private residence located in Ballarat, Australia, back in 2012. Uniquely built and inspired by the wilderness, the house features three wings, spreading out into the landscape, in order to connect the house with the site. It took twelve months to fully develop the plan and another twelve to complete the project. Functional and sustainable, Piermont showcases an intriguing design, with contours respecting the lines of the land and a cozy interior, characterised by openness and transparence. Sustainability played an important role in defining the project: the house’s orientation favours sunlight during the winter and it comes equipped with hydronic slab heating, solar hot water system and photovoltaic panels.

The single plan house is divided in different areas (wings). The intersection of these areas (wings) is a rectangular glass box, housing the kitchen, the dining area and a small luminous living room. The glass box allows a good circulation into the house’s wings and it favours social interaction. It’s also the brightest area. The Piermont house features also an external swimming pool and a small and coquette lounge area.
