The orientation of this sloping block was ideally suited to design an energy efficient split level home. Landscape retaining was constructed to achievemultiple flat areas for gardens and a pool due to the block having a 10 meter fall to the rear. The open plan captures stunning views as well as fantastic breezes. Cross ventilation and low emissivity glass on the eastern and western sides, as well as shading of the windows, ensures a very comfortable house in the summer. The northern orientation of the deck and the clear glass used in the windows and doors enables natural heating from the sun in the winter.
