Morris Partnership designed the Hinterland house in rural Australia with the purpose of accommodating the natural wildlife that surrounds the home. Here, wildlife can roam free without any restrictive fences, screens, gardens or the like. The design of the home also takes into account the natural landscape and is built with a view of a nearby dam.

The Hinterland house uses some bold saturated colors both inside and outside. Morris Partnership employed an array of design elements to make the home environmentally friendly: recycled timber, shading and cross ventilation make air conditioning unnecessary, and solar power is used for heating and hot water.

The Hinterland house is a bold splash of contemporary architecture located in an area with many unique considerations for the architects to take into account. The house reflects the uniqueness of Australia's backcountry.
