COMPLETED IN 2008

Hidden behind a front fence of round-slat panels and stacked stone, from the street this house appears as a collection of separated pavilions. The home features elevated rooflines articulated in Colorbond steel with custom-made gutters shaped to capture large downpours, all creating a flat-edged flair that accentuates the Japanese-inspired design.
