Living areas open to the deck to expand indoor spaces to the garden.
The house demonstrates innovative use of space to maximize living areas and storage, and creates exciting spatial volumes.
Instead of providing every space in the brief individually, the solution reduces the building footprint by providing easily operated, highly flexible spaces and maximizing the use of existing and new volumes to cater for a range of uses.
The method was successful, as the required functions were catered for, while reducing the consumption of materials, energy and money.
In addition, the garden area has been maximized and internal spaces are allowed to stretch to outdoor living areas and the garden, connecting users to the outside environment via views, light and natural ventilation.
