we develop our earlier explorations of the built form as a single object within a space, punctured by an internal garden.
connections are made between the internal garden and the space around the house, providing a layering of landscape within and surrounding the built form.
this approach aims to place as much significance on the landscape and outdoor spaces as any of the internal living spaces, emphasising the role of the outdoor areas for this family and their physical environment. the landscape becomes not just the surrounds to the architecture, but central to it.
by internalising the garden, not only within the built form but within the site, the garden is cut off from the typical rhythm of the surrounding suburban backyards all in alignment, providing seclusion and intimacy.
