Green Solution

This 295 sq.m. house is sited on an irregularly shaped bungalow lot, surrounded on 3 sides by small roads. The building has been aligned to the longest boundary – along Daffodil Drive. The 1st storey is raised slightly above the ground, providing privacy for the outdoor terrace, swimming pool and visual screening from the carporch. A waterfall feature wall acts as a backdrop to the swimming pool while the outdoor spaces extend across the timber deck into the living and dining spaces. The building is curved at one end, in response to the curved site. This is reflected in the 1st storey around a dining space for 10 persons, and a curved walk-in wardrobe for the master bedroom on the 2nd storey. A green copper facade clads the entire western elevation and extends horizontally to form a canopy over the pool terrace, while a dark charcoal grey pebblecrete finish accentuates the curved form of the back and sides of the building. Inside the 2nd storey are two freestanding bathrooms enclosed in 3-Form Ecoglass panels surrounding two lush outdoor landscaped courtyards which bring both light and ventilation into the spaces.
