    From the onset, the brief from the client was to design a contemporary dwelling which maximises the use of a very difficult site. Due to the steepness of the site the house is comprised of three levels, each having its own purpose.

    The house, although being comprised of three levels, appear as a double storey when viewed from the street. The Garages & Front entrance are located at street level but, due to the drastic slope, a large portion of the house is suspended on concrete columns. These columns, along with the horizontal projections of the contemporary design, give the house the illusion of hovering above the lush natural landscape it is located in.

    Concrete cantilevers and deep verandas’ provide sheltered spaces for entertainment areas whilst minimising the heat gain through the fenestration elements. Finally, timber screening elements are used to provide privacy on the various levels.
