Situated on Glendowie between a natural edge created by the steep bush clad cliff that rolls down to Karaka Bay and the sinuous road that the house fronts onto. Story from the architects “Frosted glass provides privacy at the front of the house but still allows western light to penetrate through the building. The shadow of the timber screens frayed edges through the frosted glass provides a beautiful silhouette with the afternoon light. An open riser timber and steel stair winds up through a triple height space from the garage level to the main living level and then on up to another two levels. Your view of the stair is filtered through layers of a stainless steel mesh screen hanging from the ceiling between the stairs and a dark stained timber screen.”
