Hillside Habitat in Australia by architect Edwards Moore

With the original house lost in the 2009 Victorian fires, Hillside Habitat is a replacement home in Kinglake West, Australia designed by architect Edwards Moore; the home celebrates a shared experience of place rather than fear, loss or fire. The home is nestled on a steep mountain site overlooking the Kinglake National Park with views to the Mornington Peninsula coastline in the distant south. The brief was to design a home that embraced the notion of living whilst engaging with the landscape surrounding it. The architects call their design response “biophilic,” which they define as having a “love of life or living systems” and building from “the connections that human beings subconsciously seek with the rest of life.”
