As you approach the house, a crazy paved landing extends beyond two painted brick walls that leads you to the front door.
The crazy paving continues inside through this entry space to an east facing frameless glazed window.
The painted brick walls also extend internally and the texture of the paving underfoot and the simple tree beyond provide the sense of still being outside.
There are a series of level changes through the middle of the house.
These are constructed of polished concrete and oak floorboards that define each of the spaces.
The rear kitchen and dining areas, most importantly, have an angled roof and timber lined ceiling that provides a large north facing clerestory window.
This allows the sun to penetrate this space, and naturally expel hot air through an opening window at the high level.
There is a small external courtyard to the north of the main living room which allows for another important north facing window.
The window rises over four metres in height into a narrow void above the rear of the living room – bathing this space in natural light and midday sun.
The living room also orients to the south where a large, double-glazed window provides a direct visual connection to the pool from within the house.
