Nestled behind a 1920’s two storey duplex, this new townhouse rises among the treetops to provide an upper level living eyrie and a lower level domicile supplemented by a three car garage. Champagne coloured brickwork forms a modulated and textured shell, crowned by stained laminated cypress posts and beams housing the primary living space with its glazed perimeter providing pervasive natural daylighting and cross ventilation. External terraces to living and bedroom spaces are framed by galvanised steel sections with sheer translucent black acrylic screens forming a complimentary patina to the textured brickwork. Photovoltaic solar cells and recycled water system compliment the environmentally sustainable design.
