This new house is on a compact suburban site. In this context, we have designed a sequence of garden spaces interconnected with interiors to enhance the sense of space. The experience of the house and garden is of a seamless connection of high quality indoor/outdoor amenity.

To maximise access to northern light, the home hugs the bent southern boundary and is divided into two distinct wings. The kitchen acts as fulcrum to form the two wings between formal and informal areas each with special outdoor landscaped areas. The interior is enriched by the interplay of spatial and functional characteristics of the entertaining or public space/room, a large double height space with fireplace, dining and seating areas, and the more intimate private rooms for family use including a family room, bedrooms upstairs and a study/nanny’s room or grandmother’s apartment with its own bathroom.

The character of a house in a garden is immediately apparent through its soft presentation to the street with the only built structures being the entry gate and garage. The gardens extend to the footpath edge with the boundary fence absorbed by planting maintaining privacy from the public domain.
