Its undulating façade extends a welcoming embrace, forming an open arm around the central entrance. With limited space for traditional verandas or porticos, a steel hood gracefully shades the front door, accessible via a fluid path and entry steps.

Adorned with blue and jade herringbone mosaic tiles, reminiscent of the ocean’s surface, the base of the building glistens and ripples in the sunlight.
The main floor, painted in a soft blue hue, mirrors the grandeur of a renaissance residence’s first floor – the ‘piano nobile’ – traditionally reserved for esteemed residents seeking refuge from the street’s hustle and bustle below.
Crowning the structure is the metal-clad bedroom level, set back from the street front, awaiting the softening touch of cascading trailing plants to soften its armored façade.
Landscaper, Michael Bates, has maximized every inch of available space, planting edible fruit trees throughout the petite garden areas – olive trees to the front, lilly pilly and guava to the rear. The addition of beehives and carefully selected flowers creates a haven for bees and humans alike.
Interior Designer, Romaine Alwill, and Project Architect, Diana Yang, have meticulously crafted every detail, utilizing every millimeter to optimize storage and create a seamless flow of human interaction within the space. From the dining room credenza doubling as a kids’ homework area to the inventive use of mirrored partitions to borrow light, every element serves a purpose.
