The trampers hut has been reinterpreted for modern living

Hidden Hills House

In an age where big is perceived to be better, Hidden Hills House bucks the trend. A modest programme of 140sqm for a family of four has generated spaces that are completely utilised and enjoyed. Like a hut at the end of a long day's tramp, the home suggests a safe, welcoming environment that has evolved over time, nestled within its natural setting. Humble by nature and simple in form, materials and construction – the design sits unpretentiously within its natural environment.
Honest materials and forms have been composed into a warm, compact and inviting holiday retreat. The central linking spine creates a delightful variety of circulation experiences, including spaces that offer solitude, companionship, reflection and rest.
