Glass House

For this project the residents enjoy their developing landscape from the perspective of their elevated decking.

“A sculptural yet functional space to view from the deck.”

“The contractor sourced a number of old wharf beams, and we used them to form a large fishhook shape. The ‘bait’ at the end of the hook was a communal fire pit and seating area, the round seats recycled from a tree that had to be removed on site.

A semi-dry riverbed skirted the hook, with raised planted berms proving a sense of privacy and protection.”
