The existing and proposed halves of the building will be separated by a series of courtyards, which enable the home to turn its back on neighbouring flats and create a dramatic focal point around a central courtyard and pool. Outdoors, private open space will be designed to maximise privacy and daylight, extending multi-functional living spaces and wrapping a landscaped, green perimeter around the building.
A gentle play between materials and double height volumes will create an elegant sculptural home. The extremely liveable interiors of this 260sqm ‘bungalow’ will be bathed in natural light and benefit from abundant cross ventilation. It will be a modern inner-city oasis.
