The house was conceived as a simple two-storey villa placed in the centre of a flat, rectangular site, surrounded by mature trees. The ground floor spaces are defined by a series of interconnecting white painted brick walls with full height glazing between. The plan of the house and arrangement of these walls, divides the garden into four quadrants, each with a different theme.

Open plan living, kitchen and dining spaces are at ground level, arranged around a top-lit, double height stairwell that also acts as a gallery space. The gallery bleeds into adjoining spaces with paintings carefully positioned in each. These spaces have strong connections to formal and informal garden areas. The upper level, a timber clad volume with screened windows and carved out balconies, contains the family’s private quarters and includes bathrooms lit only from above.
