Sleek Ridge Road Residence Nestled in Australian Hills

Tucked away in the hills of Fingal, Australia, architectural firm StudioFour designed the highly-stylized Ridge Road Residence. Clad in black timber and dark reflective glass, it seamlessly blends into the surroundings. The house was designed to separate the private and public areas; the kitchen, dining and living rooms blend into one fluid space while the bedrooms are detached. This floor plan provides a level of intimacy as well as the advantages of an open, airy space.

A stark color palette consisting primarily of black and white emphasizes the materials and physical forms of the residence and the landscape. StudioFour wanted to create a quality of space that provided a sense of sanctuary, enclosure and comfort while promoting interaction with the landscape.
