On a large cliffside property on the hill at Portsea, this guest house sits as a timber-clad box perched atop a rendered base nestled into the hillside.

The generous guest living zone spills out onto a north facing deck with the solid masonry base of the building providing a four-car garage.

Operable screens concealed in the timber batten fa├žade allow the house to be opened up when in use and closed down when unoccupied. The timber and textured render complement the surrounding native vegetation while defining a contemporary pavilion.
