A new house for a site boxed in by neighbouring houses.

Houses in Sydney often open outwards, but here that was not a good idea so the concept is to create a quiet & internalised house that has a strong relationship to nature. The design is built on the interior relationships: the rooms to the gardens & the rooms to each other across the garden. All rooms look into the central garden & also out to the front or back gardens.

Details include: environmental technology, low-maintenance construction.
