Northbridge House 6
The building is arranged in two linked, rectangular parts which step down the site to create a simple geometric form. This simplicity is carried through to the structure of the house which is largely exposed off form concrete contrasted against timber, stone and dark coloured steel and aluminium. The straight lines of the building are broken by a series of free form Japanese inspired garden areas. This includes the central courtyard space which runs north - south over two levels, splitting the building parts and allowing light and ventilation to the main areas. A rear garden and swimming pool are positioned above a high cliff line which runs across the site. This restricts the available building area on the site but creates a feeling of elevation and outlook over the surrounding area to the east.
