Designing Musk Creek Residence

Situated just below the crest of a hill in Flinders, the Musk Creek Road Residence is formed by a curving retaining wall following the shape of the property’s slope. Protected from winds by outer buildings, a central courtyard is formed, looking across the rural landscape to the ocean beyond. The entire estate was designed as an integrated master plan including a dwelling as well as landscaped gardens, broader site plantings, water collection, equipment storage and access. All the elements work together to support the complex realities of providing comfortable living on a rural country property.
