Tussock House

Tussock is a family retreat, nestled in the alpine village of Thredbo, New South Wales.

The ground floor of the building is essentially sub-terranean with only one of the four elevations revealing itself to the viewer. The upper level is a pavilion structure, which sits in a field of Tussock's native grasses and flowers. The pavilion structure is substantially glazed, creating living areas with a sense of lightness and allowing filtered views of the surrounding alpine environment.

The entry is lit via flasing at the upper level, producing a diffused light that filters through an open staircase and into the subterranean entry foyer. This creates an unexpectedly light and warm entry which then leads up into the pavillion spaces.
