The house is designed into two wings set at an angle, one for living and one for bedrooms.
A north facing courtyard is protected from westerly winds by the living and bedroom zones. As well as insuring the residence is able to enjoy maximum views from every room in the house, cross flow ventilation can occur.
The objective was to maximise natural light and views while maximising energy efficiency.
This home won 2008 HIA Energy Efficient home of the year.
