墨爾本東南部莫寧頓半島（Mornington Peninsula）懸崖邊上的一個小鎮裏住有 900 多位居民，在鎮上一個以傳統的英式小屋和木屋為主的社區裏。伍茲貝格設計的一幢外形蜿蜒的三層住宅在此依山而建，引人注目。
With an arresting house set confidently on the edge of a peninsula coastal town, Woods Bagot is redefining how architects respond to the Australian landscape. Steadily settling into the contours of a cliffside in Mornington Peninsula—a small town south-east of Melbourne with just over 900 residents—the sinuous three-story dwelling hangs onto the curved landscape in a neighborhood with predominantly traditional English cottages and timber box houses.
Two concentric volumes encased in limestone treated with a natural clamshell pattern are asymmetrically stacked on top of each other. Both the exterior and twisted geometry are allusions to the natural environment. The encrusted surface is a reference to the local coral reefs dating back to the Jurassic periods while the torqued geometry looks like two basalt rocks sliding against each other from a volcanic eruption—which formed the bluffs of this peninsula. The cliffsides' geology contains both limestone and basalt.
Oriented from the North to the South, the design responds to the landscape due to applied mapping, monitoring and observation to construct a project determined entirely by its site. The eventual form provides shade from the descending western sun while opening up to the ocean to let in the sunrise.
精心挑選的材料和飾麵營造出幽暗靜謐的室內氛圍，與室外澳洲明媚的陽光形成鮮明的對比。通過與長期室內設計合作夥伴Hecker Guthrie工作室和設計師Simone Haag的合作，建築內部的石柱和地板延續了石灰石的質地，與炭黑色的隔板和牆麵、煙灰色的大理石台麵和牆壁、還有黃銅小物件的點綴相映成趣，這樣的色彩搭配給人帶來豐富的感官體驗。
The interiors are sympathetic to the house’s siting, allowing its inhabitants to feel enveloped in their elements and experience the impact of the location. The uppermost level contains the master bedroom wing and living room area which is separated by a timber and stone clad staircase. The entire level enjoys views to the coast as well as a south-facing deck accessible from the living room. The ground level story has two entry points: the double-height entrance to the west and a private eastern entry that meets the circular, sunken courtyard leading to another living space and three self-contained guestrooms wrapped by curved, timber-lined hulls. Below this is a subterranean basement with a wine cellar and plant room.
