House design resolves challenges of tricky access and a steep and awkwardly shaped site

With the look of an elegant Japanese teahouse perched on high, the top-floor living, dining and kitchen space is all glass and slender fenestrations on this, the scenic side of the home. A pool, sandstone-topped firepit and an outdoor cooking area all feature on the sprawling terrace which takes up almost half of this roof level. There is also a sizeable lawn beyond the pool at the back of the residence.
