Designed to sit comfortably in the landscape, the elegant low slung volumes of this new residence are capped with a faceted and sculptural roof that floats delicately over the main living volume.
The floating roof element allows natural daylight to permeate the interior of the home during the day creating a unique sense of space, volume and light. As suggested by the project's name, gentle uplighting is intended to heighten this floating effect at night, creating a beacon of light and sense of interest and visual drama when viewed from the streetscape.
Clad in local stone, the home's external walls present a sense of solidity that encapsulates the bedrooms and private spaces. Selected for its low maintenance requirements the stone will weather and age gracefully over time. Large triple glazed sliding doors provide seamless connections to the outdoor terraces and landscaped site. A sheltered and private courtyard located at the heart of the home is covered with an operable and retractable louvre roof allowing for alfresco dining and entertaining year round.
