This is a contemporary home for a private client with a floor area over 400sq.m. providing three exceptionally large bedrooms. It is created around a dramatic full-height staircase, top lit by a glazed roof light the same size as the stairwell.
Designed over 4 levels the house is finished in a white render with large expanses of glass, all housed under a curved single ply membrane roof (WDA's first roof of this kind).
The landscaping was designed to be integral to the house and includes an attractive water feature, and balconies.
