Modern design is the foundation of this home, inspired by minimalist approaches to shape and form. A special characteristic of the home is the water feature that acts as a partition between the living area and the garden. In the living room, the water feature is seen as a backdrop to the pond through the full length window. The courtyard uses the other side of the water feature as its backdrop. The brief of this home was to include an artist’s studio. This was achieved by placing the studio to the front of the home and still giving it a separation, yet still allowing accessibility.
