The client brief was to design a substantial six bedroom contemporary family home of around 7500 square foot in floor area. The ground floor accommodates family sitting room, family room, kitchen breakfast, utility, open plan dining room and hallway, gym, study and games room with the lower ground floor housing the triple garage. The central feature of the property is a double height glazed entrance lobby overlooking the outdoor infinity edged swimming pool.
The structure is a steel frame supporting precast concrete floors with solid masonry walls as infill panels which are then externally insulated and rendered. On the glazed elevations the steel frame has been made a feature by providing beams externally from the glazing and the finishes.
