The design responds to a steep one-directional Western facing site overlooking Sydney’s Pittwater.

Transparency within the dwelling’s core provides interconnectivity between these contrasting edges allowing the habitants to experience an ever-changing quality of light and atmosphere, whilst connecting to the landscape.
