As a couple with three energetic young boys, the client brief centered around notions of family time, privacy, outdoors and a love of entertaining. Connecting the house to the garden and swimming pool were key, enabling the couple to supervise and enjoy themselves concurrently. The garden design is the perfect complement to the home, adding shade, softness and playful energy to the outdoor spaces and offering ample ground for the kids’ myriad of activities and games. Structural engineering and landscape design contributed to the composition of the residence, each intimately involved in the design and execution of the floating concrete roof and cascading greenery. The material selections such as the face bricks draw reference from nearby bungalows, while off-form concrete and burnt timber cladding showcase modern materiality in all their glory.
