This 2 1/2 storey semi-detached house has a 4-metre high light timber-cladding structure that greets the visitor. The living and dining spaces and the car porch create a seamless whole, separated by a vertically slated timber screen and a series of sliding glass doors.

There is also a steel-framed staircase with slated timber treads that rises to the second storey of the house where a bamboo courtyard brings in green and light into the bedroom area.

On the second storey, there are three bedrooms that form an inner core. These bedrooms are interconnected by a high ceiling study area at the house perimeter. The master bathroom is open to the bedroom completely and also features a sunken bath and shower area, a timber pergola ceiling with skylights, and a space for potted plants.
