Garden of Reflection

The house occupies almost an entire block. Intending to invite more light and air inside the architect perforated the core of the building, creating outdoor rooms. The sound of water is used to lure visitors from the roof garden into the atrium gardens. On continuing the "journey" through the house a spectacular view of Sydney Harbour finally unravels. On the eleveated cliff an 'edgeless' swimming pool creates a visual connection to the water of the Harbour.
