All living spaces are orientated towards the dramatic westerly views. The natural timber cladding facade with sliding timber screens will filter natural light and heat in addition to providing glare control.

Limited natural materials will be used with the home incorporating a highly sustainable design approach. The project achieves a high degree of sustainable design through use and integration of a geothermal ground loop with in-slab hydronic heating system, on site water retention & waste treatment and passive solar design.
