Village House

Glow Design Group

Designing a home for avid gardeners is no easy feat - what’s outside the house is just as important as what’s inside.

GLOW Design Group has effortlessly designed Village House around the property’s outdoor elements, ensuring that its layout takes full advantage of its views while maintaining separate wings for future family members. Open to all but the southern aspect, every room of the home interacts with the lush garden and its expansive views of Mount Macedon.


Bi-fold bathroom windows allow the residents to bathe in sunlight, while the living and dining spaces spill on to an expansive veranda making it a perfect space for entertaining.


Village House exemplifies the beautiful use of cladding.


James Hardie HardieflexTM is the standout feature behind the design of Village House. GLOW Design Group has stunningly incorporated Hardieflex cladding and ‘board and batten’ joinery into the home.


To address the clients’ need for a home which pays homage to their affinity for gardening, the choice of materials has been carefully considered. The walls – which would have had a flat and rather plain appearance – have been made interesting with the cladding’s joinery creating shadows which give the house depth and a changing face.


GLOW Design Group have effectively made use of a durable, energy efficient material and produced a family home which is unique, perfectly suited to its owners, and built to last.
