Spread over multiple levels, the five-bedroom residence is home to a growing family. Therefore, integrating a sense of flexibility into the planning and the base palette was key to carrying forward the ideal foundation for the coming chapters. Taking inspiration from its namesake, the careful and deliberate arrangement of linear forms across the site creates moments of compression and release through a balance between the built and the natural elements. Whilst the materials remain dichromatic throughout, the combination of natural timbers and stone adds a depth of texture and connects to the natural surrounds. Internally, a separation between passive and active zones is made clear through the changing ceiling heights and the varying plushness of the flooring.
Within, polished plaster is applied to the clean lines and sweeping curves of the interior, whilst fluted glass plays with various transparencies. With comfort being a key motivator, supported by the elevated nature of the finishes and form, inviting furniture encourages interaction and rest. Disconnected from the outside world, the indoor and outdoor spaces feel calm and restorative, and the immersion within such a lushly garden helps emphasise that sense of separation. As the home is its own destination of retreat, privacy is expressed through minimal inward visibility and by directing views and movement to the rear landscaped areas and shared living zones.
