Clifton 6

Peerutin were invited to enter a limited competition to design a ‘statement’ house for a discerning foreign client.
Perched above Clifton, this unique property is positioned along the spectacular Atlantic Seaboard with views across the bay towards the 12 apostles and beyond.

The challenge was to create the main house at the top of the granite outcrop, while providing ancilliary accommodation in the lower levels.

The solution for us, was to build the support spaces ‘into the mountain’ and to articulate the iconic forms over two ‘floating’ levels at the top, to optimise the views.

Unfortunately, the project was never realised.
