On a steep odd-shaped hill with existing large trees, this seven bedrooms multi-generational house meanders fluidly upwards over five floors diverting around the very mature trees.

Broken down into parts, the massing reduces as it goes higher. The house is intended to stand out whilst not overpowering the context.
The private spaces are individual and separated yet easily connected to the common areas of the whole.
Voids are strategically carved out to ensure natural light and ventilation to all rooms.
The main void, a sunburst waterfall courtyard, is a surprise welcome upon a deep entry from the foot of the hill.
An intangible dialog between Architecture and Nature. Respecting the existing landform and landscape, the fluid spaces and organic form create a nebulous inside-outside boundary experience.
