Perched atop a hill's edge within the Byron Bay Hinterland, Federal House designed by Edition Office is a platform from which to observe the landscape.
Within the hills of its hinterland site, the house aims to facilitate a highly experiential relationship with its surroundings while remaining consciously aware of its outsider and temporal status within the deep timelines of that landscape. Open-air halls encircle a central fern garden, falling to a sheltered, subterranean pool.The home’s design experiments with light and form to create a distinct way of living within a remarkable location.
