Under the Moonlight by Giovanni D’Ambrosio Architecture, Australia


Under the Moonlight may sound like a well known tune,however it is the vision  of Indonesian Giovanni D’Ambrosio Architecture, a stunning villa overlooking Mount Hotham, Australia.Built of locally sourced natural stone, wood and glass, the villa blends in perfectly with its natural surroundings and its oversized windows frames the expansive views of the impressive landscape.Based upon the historical archetypal houses once lived in by local cowboys the architect added prism glass  walls and steel roofs which add to the contemporary style of the holiday home.The glazed frames dominate the house and merges both the interior and exterior.The two storey house focuses on the main lounge with two further bedrooms and spa on the first floor Under the Moonlight was carefully designed to avoid any damage to the nature reserve in which it is located and uses natural muted colours to blend in perfectly with its enviroment.

  1. I love it how the house almost blends into its surroundings… not in a way that it would “disappear” but in a way that it “belongs”…

  2. Its stunning – only wish that I had designed it!
