Glen Iris Residence This design benefited from daring client who had a clear vision for living in what remains an unconventional new house. They were determined to create a carefully tailored solution that met this ambition. A rigorously zoned floor plan surrounds an internal courtyard that opens up normally closed internal walls as well as providing an opportunity for outdoor privacy. Internal and external living areas offer both interconnectedness and isolation when required. The utility of the interior surfaces belies the comfort that the light and airy rooms provide whilst the building's robust external finishes are well served by the client's simple but masterful landscaping.
