A timber clad facade greets the visitor to this private semi-detached house. The house opens up on to the side garden with its timber deck and lap pool.


The staircase opens up in the middle of the house and an elliptical skylight brings in light to this space. On the 2nd storey, a curved wall interplays with the timber slatted corridor, which looks down into the pool below.


The 3rd storey has a lounge room which opens to the roof terrace. An open shelf with varying widths and heights reflect the design of the front facade, which also has its timber members reducing in width towards the edges.
