The home had to be sustainable and accommodation had to cater for grown children and international visitors while maximize views, and an outdoor lifestyle. All accommodation had to connect and open up to the exterior.
The home was conceptualised as separate interconnected north facing suites or buildings. The living space with opens onto a generous patio and pool deck make up the public spaces while a gallery to the south links all the bedrooms. While the client needed to be able to work when home they did not want a dedicated study the solution was a concealed workstation in the space linking the living area’s and gallery. Timber shutters were employed extensively throughout as a means of allowing natural cross ventilation in summer and a second insulation element in winter. The indigenous garden is watered by means of harvested rain water.
