The story behind the design
Located on a working vineyard in Adelaide Hills, Vigneron House expresses strong architectural intent, engaging the external environment and encompassing a wide range of natural materials. The commanding form of the house effectively articulates its overriding character; a solid yet discerning residence, Vigneron House confidently pushes the boundaries of design. From every vantage point available, residents are offered a prime view of the surrounding landscape and the interior elements of the home are equipped to withstand heavy familial use.
Raw tactility governs the material palette of the house, led by Eco Outdoor natural stone
As art collectors, the clients were highly attuned to the aesthetic impact of natural stone, likening it to a work of art. Enoki showcases Eco Outdoor Dover Antique Limestone flooring in living areas. With its immersive dark grey tone and delicate veining, the product grounds the residence in a sense of sophistication. To combat the effects of high foot traffic, Enoki tactfully applies Cotto Nero terracotta flooring to the mudroom. The hard-wearing nature of terracotta combines with its dark colour to maintain a timeless appearance. Apollo Random Ashlar walling features both internally and externally adding a rougher textural feel.

In materiality, Vigneron House is a vision of contemporary comfort, in which distinguished stone spaces are tempered by softening detail. Standing in sharp contrast to the dark tones of Dover Antique Limestone, a Super White island bench dominates the open-plan kitchen.
