Contemporary House Design Clad in Hard TimberStirling by Mac Interactive is a family house project which is clad in an incredibly hard timber called Grey Bark. It has shape that is driven by topography of the surrounding urban context and client’s requirements of a three storey house with high ceilings. The detailing is contemporary in the way the cladding appears to end abruptly against the sky, whilst the windows wrap around onto the roof to articulate the three-dimensional form. The interior is focused around the kitchen which also connects indoor and outdoor spaces. The idea to connect the kitchen with the wrapped with walls terrace is very nice and interesting. The fireplace that is located not far away from the kitchen is very beautiful and elegant. House also features a lot of green technologies. A 10,000 litre rainwater tank supplies W.C.s, laundry and irrigation. Cooling happens naturally while heat generated by the fireplace make bedrooms more comfortable during cold nights.
