“Solis” Residence, Australia.
“Solis” Residence, by Renato D’ Ettore Architects
The Concrete masterpiece is set within its stunning natural surroundings on Hamilton Island, Australia and it is sculpted from concrete, stone, block work and glass resulting in a sequence of dramatic volumes incorporating airy living spaces and private sheltered outdoor zones. The complexity is reduced to achieve clarity and simplicity which results to calm but also stimulate the senses when nessesary, by using light and shade, space and materiality.
The stunning view of the water and the idea of equality between internal and external living is the main concept of the sctructure. The building elements are intertwined with reflection ponds and a swimming pool, lending a sense of tranquility providing casual, elegant outdoor living, allowing the natural environment to dominate.
Solis also won the National Award for Residencial Architecture on 2011.
