Using large glass spaces, the architects created unobstructed views of the backyard garden from all areas of the house making a tangible link to the green spaces. Based on owner’s request “a predominantly white interior with a feature highlight color”, the whole house has white interior and various green as highlight which seamless connect the inside with the surroundings. Some new material and technologies(passive temperature regulation, insulation, solar protection, grey water system, recycled timber flooring and decking) are used to make this house a Eco-friendly “green house” as well. Really impressive example of “Modern Meets Victorian” villa.
