This space in the home is symbolic of the generosity and joy embedded into the architecture. The window seat is accessed via a curved bridge, framing a generously curved void, and creating a moment for quiet reflection or play for the young family. From this spot, the best backyard in Balmain, Punch Park, can be enjoyed while still in the home.
