Yarck House

Yarck, Victoria 2008

Yarck House provides weekender accommodation for a young family of five on an expansive rural property at the base of the alpine region in Victoria.

The house is contained in a long pavilion whilst a utility courtyard separates a games room outbuilding, all of which is united under a single protective roof element. The linear arrangement offers every room full north aspect for views and passive solar gain, whilst protecting northerly outdoor areas from the predominant southerly winds.
