In the plan form, the crank provides some privacy to the front deck of the house from the western neighbor. It is also essential to design a sheltered rear courtyard and a series of outdoor spaces because Lake Hawea is known for its wind. This rear courtyard opens the rear living room, offering stunning views of the lake beyond.

The house levels are linked by steps, giving a noticeable transition. The entry approach of the house is a series of steps and landings that guide the visitor to the entry foyer. The dark ribbed cladding and the large aperture make this house perfect as a holiday destination.
