Situated on a steep bushland site with views to the city through the hills of Kelmscott, the site presented the tentilising potential to develop an integrated architectural and landscape response. This home both sinks and lifts from the ground, able to be simultaneously secluded from the street and open to existing bushland on the site.

A floating pavilion treading lightly on the earth, the building footprint of this modest 3×2 only takes up a quarter of the block. A combination of mass and lightweight elements provide an environment of permanence and elevation for the clients.
