A simple yet elegant symmetry approach was employed for the building form, using window penetrations and varying building materials as way of articulation. The ground floor accomodation included a double car garage, study, theatre, living/dining/kitchen opening onto a rear cover alfresco.The first floor included 3 bedrooms, a master bedroom ,with associated walk in robe and ensuite, a main bathroom and terrace. A variation to Councils minimum setback for two storey building was sought, supported by a compelling justiifcation, which included minimal adverse overshadowing impacts. Approval was also granted for a swimming pool and alfresco building at the rear of the property
