Signature project

Mt Lofty Ruin House

Mt Lofty, SA

In this unique project, the ruins of a historic stable form the bedrock of a contemporary new Adelaide Hills home.

Tucked away in the depths of Mt Lofty, a vibrant red addition extends from the ruins of a historic sandstone stable.

Inside, new meets old, with natural materials and subdued finishes complimenting the heritage stone structure.

Generously proportioned windows capture fabulous bushland views, creating a light and airy interior atmosphere.

The design is a unique expression of materiality and craftsmanship – proving that contemporary design and heritage structures can co-exist in new and delightful ways.
