This house is located at Mt. Nelson on the suburban fringe of Hobart. It is a compact 3 bedroom home which responds directly to the needs of the family for which it was designed and the site and context within which it was built.

The house is a split level design, intended to step down its gently sloping site. Its wine glass plan and angled geomentry respond to its irregularly shaped site, sun angles and view lines.

Its construction is conventional masonry, timber frame and stained timber cladding completed with finely crafted details, finishes and joinery lending this simple building a refined and delicate quality.  

It was completed by John Hebblewhite builders in 2011.
