Journey by Honeyman and Smith features a design that aims to replicate the true experience of the site.

This project derives its name from the journey through the scheme that slowly reveals different design elements, in the process replicating the journey of travelling across the sloping site. Building a home is one of life’s most important journey’s. This home by Thomas and Sara of Honeyman and Smith takes occupants on a true journey in design.

Capturing Vista Views North, East And West

The roof lines follow the angles of the surrounding hinterland. This kind of geometrical design assists the home to become one with its glorious natural surroundings. Morning and afternoon sun is reflected through the angles and curves of the home producing stunning scenery within the iconic Australian bush.

Creating A Sparse, Dramatic Entrance To The Scheme, Transferring The User Into An Atmospheric Environment.

The project derives its name from the journey through the scheme that slowly reveals different design elements.

The Lower Horizontal Form Sits Close To The Ground, Forming Both A Summer And Winter Room

The scheme for the home is split into two forms, set at 90 degrees to one another. An upper element begins the journey through the scheme, capturing vista views north, east and west. A staircase then connects the two forms following the change in grade.

The Program Requires The User To Connect And Interact With The Landscape On A Regular Basis.

The Scheme Is Split Into Two Forms, Set At 90 Degrees To One Another

The upper form is proportionally high, creating a sparse, dramatic entrance to the scheme, transferring the occupants into a truly atmospheric environment. The lower horizontal form sits close to the ground, forming both a summer and winter room. The program requires occupants to connect and interact with the landscape on a regular basis. Typical sustainable external finishes and products have been utilised both internally and externally.

Sustainable design utilising locally sourced materials is key to the Honeyman and Smith philosophy. The natural contours are expressed through an understated colour palette. Materials are predominantly locally sourced and are finished with a palette maintaining and respecting the calmness of the coastal village.
