The brief

Our clients approached us requesting a clean, modern, single-storey design, they were keen on creating a contemporary living space that would cater to their love for entertaining guests. With frequent visits from their children and grandchildren, it was essential to design a home that offered ample space and comfort, including special areas for their dog and an occasional visiting dog.
They envisioned a home filled with natural light and strategic windows capturing picturesque outdoor views. An avid gardener, and a Porsche enthusiast, sought innovative design solutions like a dedicated spot for their third car, spacious living areas to create a relaxed, functional, and stylish space that perfectly blends their love for the outdoors and entertaining.

Our approach

Our design maximises available light with a raked ceiling that runs the length of the home set with clerestory windows. The home opens at the rear into a generous living and dining that encompasses a carefully landscaped rear yard and plunge pool.
