Building on the owner’s existing site, Lucent demolished the original house and created a stunning new home to take advantage of all the site’s beautiful aspects. Built for internal and external living, the design wraps around an established golden elm. Sheltered walled courtyards capitalise on the views and allow the occupants to enjoy them year-round in comfort
The living space features both stone and recycled red brick walls providing thermal mass. These warm touches soften the clean and contemporary look of the polished concrete floor and custom built concrete bench top. Thermal efficiency is improved through orientation, hydronic under floor heating, thermal mass walling, cross ventilation, double glazing and a small footprint.
