The clients brief was to create a bold architectural statement, good daylighting, highly technologically connected (CBus) with passive thermal and environmental controls with air conditioning as a back up. On the lower level we have boat shed, plant room, underground garage and a steam room. On the middle level, outdoor living (alfresco), pool and two courtyards with living/ dining/ kitchen and bedrooms 2, 3 & 4. On the top floor we have the parents domain, bedroom/ ensuite, living and theatre room.

With the building spread over 3 levels, vertical continuity was essential to link the spaces. To solve the fragmentation of spaces, a generous central stairway creates spacial continuity timing together the different spaces, flooding the home and boat shed with light. The design also incorporates two internal courtyards which let further light into the depth of the building and also provide wind sheltered courtyards, which provide places for all seasons.

A happy client who wrote, “we are very proud of our masterpiece that you designed with us.” July 2015.
