Tranquil Divisions

The architectural masterpiece skilfully divides private and public spaces across two distinct floors. The ground floor, characterised by expansive, cool materiality, hosts generous living, dining, and kitchen areas. A grand 6m high hallway serves as the nexus, connecting the river view to the street, allowing natural breezes to flow through and infusing the home with a refreshing ambiance.

Elevated Privacy

The upper floor is a private retreat, housing principal bedrooms and bathrooms. Carefully curated view angles, translucent glazing, adjustable curtains, and screens create a cocoon of tranquility. This deliberate design not only provides a reprieve from the openness below but also maximises breathtaking outlooks to the river.
