This beautiful undulating roof hides a luxurious holiday home to be built in the stunning Yarra Valley for a celebrated Melbourne foodie and her family.

Currently awaiting Development Approval, the private ‘Hoddles Creek’ retreat on a working truffle farm, will nestle into the hillside, taking full advantage of panoramic views to the Warburton ranges, and serve as a welcomed escape from busy city living.

The building form is based around a series of very simple pavilions that are enveloped by an undulating roof form to compliment the contours of the site.

A wide veranda to the north wraps the accommodation to allow expansive views, whilst managing the privacy of sleeping spaces against the larger open entertaining areas.

Stone from the disused on-site quarry will be used to create a striking plinth to elevate the pavilions for the best possible views.

“As a holiday home, we have focused on creating luxurious pause points to encourage the slower pace of life,” 

As a celebrated foodie, our client is very focused on the kitchen and food preparation spaces. As such, we’ve designed a generous kitchen island bench that takes a central position within the main living pavilion and flows seamlessly from the indoors out to the veranda.

The two luxurious guest pavilions – which are connected to the main house under the organic roof form – feature private outdoor showers and an expansive veranda to the east.
