The principal organising element of the house is a two-storey high entry volume which extends out into a shallow pond and water feature in the back yard. The entry allows for vertical circulation via an open stair and is crossed by a bridge linking the first floor living and kitchen areas. The bedrooms are positioned on the ground floor and open onto landscaped courtyards, while elevating the living spaces above to capture views of the nearby bay. A rooftop terrace allows for a panoramic view of the surrounding area including views of the Harbour Bridge and CBD. An existing mature Frangipani tree is retained as a key landscape element.
