The client required a refined landscape design to compliment this extremely modern, balinese inspired house with useable, private and serene outdoor spaces. The house and landscape focussed on a central atrium which was designed to be viewed from an number of different rooms and vantage points. The house also had to blend with the streetscape and adjoining nature reserve. The attention to detail in this house is at the highest level. The craftsmanship is evident at every point, including the landscape. This house has recently won the 2008 Australian Institute of Architects - Robin Dods Award for the best domestic architecture in Queensland.
