Incredible transparent home in the mountains
This immaculately crafted art form has been designed by one of Italy’s leading architects, Giovanni D’Ambrosio. The home was built within the scenic Australian mountains in one of Victoria’s premier ski resorts, the Dinner Plain Village, overlooking Mount Hotham. Constructed of steel, concrete, timber and locally quarried stone, D’Ambrosio created a structure that appears to be carved out of the site, firmly anchored to the ground by a massive stone fireplace that’s expressed both internally and externally. A twenty tonne cantilevered fireplace is supported by two hundred cubic square meters of concrete poured below the surface.
