Perched on the edge of a leafy lane, the linear composition of this Blackheath house presents an abstract facade of timber and steel to the street and creates carefully screened entry, central and rear courtyards to the home.

The streamlined industrial aesthetic references the corrugated iron of rural buildings, with walls extending into garden trellises that dissolve into the garden and mesh with the neighbourhood landscape.
The hydronic heated concrete floors, water tank collection and reuse in the house, and carefully detailed building connections respond to the broad ranging climate conditions of the Blue Mountains.
Subdued hues of green and grey inspired by the forests of the surrounding mountains create contemplative interiors and framed views out to neighbouring gardens.
