Batman House

Clever Design

Sited on an ex-pastoral 1.2 hectare allotment, the rural setting offers magnificent views to Australia’s first ‘cable-stayed’ Batman Bridge. Importantly, its architectural form connects the cues taken from the distinctive landmark Bridge. With meticulous attention to engineering requirements, this project makes exemplary use of the potential of steel construction – structural efficiency, durability and low maintenance – to produce a quite remarkable residential building. The building quite literally treads lightly on the landscape and takes full advantage of its spectacular setting, not to mention incorporating passive energy efficient design principles. The Judging Panel was impressed by the clients’ heartfelt comment that “houses like this don’t happen to people like us”.
