Landscaped with glass on four sides this allows light to the entertainment areas, gym and secondary bedrooms leaving more room upstairs for the rear yard and swimming pool The upper level contains the master and two additional bedrooms, living room, family, dining and kitchen.
Werf walls and a pergola covered walkway lead to the front entrance which opens into the courtyard lobby overlooking the reflective pond and greenery. Glass pocket doors create separate entrances and lead into the side wings. Focal features of the entrances are the floating sculpture ledges. Here Angus Taylor sculptures are reflected in the fractured mirror wall cladding. The same fractured pattern is again used in the smokey mirror cladding of the stairways. Limed oak cantilevered treads, timber cladding with white stone ledges and frameless glass balustrading add to the transparency and airiness of these spaces. Clear blown glass globes by David Reade are suspended and reflected in the double volume stairwells adding interest.
The clients’ brief was to ensure that when they occupied the house on their own that it was not too big and empty, however at the same time it also had to allow for the whole family and grandchildren should they decide to stay over. The decision was made to keep all the entertainment spaces as well as the master bedroom on the ground floor, with three additional guest suites on the first level. regulations only permitted a single story, the guests’ suites were accommodated in the roof attics.
