Scope of services

  • Architectural services
  • Close to nature, this residence was perched on a very small platform in the rainforest hillside. Whilst the house is concealed from view, the spaces within the house open direct to the rainforest, the wildlife and cooling breezes. A resort experience within a very personal domain. A spine walkway weaves its way through the trees, creating interest and response to context. The poolside courtyard and surrounding ponds integrate building and indoor-outdoor spaces amidst a truly tropical experience.
