Dalgety House

Dalgety House

6 Beds + 6 Baths

With every family, there comes the point where there is a need for one’s own space. This house provides precisely that. Home also reflects the family’s encouragement of different sports and outside activities. Also, the owners are unable ever to turn down a visitor. Taking time to know the client has allowed the Aukular team to design a home that caterers for all. A place that can grow and constrict to suit the family’s lifestyle in the years ahead.

The Site

At the banks of the Snowy River is the small town of Dalgety. Founded as an important river crossing along the travelling stock route. The Snowy River has many creeks branching off. One such offshoot is where this large family home is situated. The site feels like iconic Australia with acres of beautiful rolling hills, green pastures, and a lovely creek.

The Design

The design was set up to split the landscape with the structure running down the hill. Allow the client always to be seeing the lush rolling hill that flows into the horizon as the expansive windows along the house frame them—capturing the shadows chasing the clouds across the sky and making sure this one of one sunset is always seen.

One of Arkular’s more extensive projects, this home has two protruding modular bedroom wings, one dedicated to parents and the other to the kids. The living room creates a central hub for the two tribes to meet.


The materials are to be clad in a mixture of Axon and Colourbond inspired by the stockman huts that are scattered around this great location. Internal courtyards offer privacy from the winds, and large water tanks make this house more sustainable.
