The house is designed as a long, slender two storey bar that hugs the southern boundary of its site. This provides the home with one of the most prized elements of suburban life: a large expanse of sunny,
north-facing yard. 

Formally, the house is composed of two key elements: an open and flexible ground floor, which is defined by rendered blade walls, and a quiet, introverted sleeping box. The ground floor contains all the main living spaces, which overlook the garden. The upper volume, meanwhile, is a white weatherboard box, and is occasionally animated by ventilation flaps.
