Sleek, graceful, and sympathetic with its environment, the design maintains a connection with the intimacy of home living through its treatment of internal spaces; and material integration. Timber is used as a predominant feature material, largely due to the phenomenological association that we as human beings have with the material naturally. The design seeks to permeate a symbiosis with its surrounding context and inhabitants. Thus allowing the architecture to become charged not only by the activities that take place within, but also by those surrounding it, and in turn, catalysing the opportunities for subtle integration and hopeful optimism.
