The project proposes a new house threaded in and around mature angophoras and rock outcrops on a steep site looking south to the Lane Cove River. The house is broken down into parts in order to retain the trees and rocks. By doing this, a strong relationship is created between internal areas and the landscape. Light, views and ventilation are also enhanced by this arrangement. A suspended passage begins at the entry on the upper rock outcrop and runs through the house with outlook to trees, courtyards and landscape along the way. Likewise the main living spaces relate to the exterior by opening out to the view to the south and to a partially covered court to the north west. A curvaceous roof covers the main sections allowing in northern light while visually rolling down the steep incline of the site. The lower floor is kids' zone with a cantilevered swimming pool adjacent to a rumpus room. A firepit area is proposed below the pool and again relates to landscape; this time rock outcrops at the bottom of the site.
