The Brief:

We wanted to create a contemporary, modern home that stands out in a crowd. We love the expansive views the site has and wanted to utilise its sunny aspect to provide outdoor living year round. A warm, private and quiet house was also essential.

Design & Build challenges:

A difficult sloping site and poor quality soil was a challenge but Federation took extra care as to how the build was set on it's foundations. Daylighting issues with neighbours had to be worked through to ensure the brief was met with minimal effect on them ñ but also maximising the footprint of our build.

Design features:

The e-span cladding created an additional impression of the imposing nature of the house that already had 4.2m studs. As you moved around the outside of the house it created different visual aspects from looking like giant louvers to giving it a modern sleek look. It definitely makes it stand out from the neighbours! The red front door flows you through to the timber floating stairs that sit alongside the laser precision cut feature wall and glass balustrade.

What did our clients say...

"Federation were immediately interested in the type of build that we wanted rather than just producing a standard build. They worked closely with us to ensure every detail was as we wanted. They were genuinely interested in how we felt about the progress and if it was meeting our vision. I would and have recommended Federation to friends and family that are building because we had such a fantastic experience".
