OUTDOOR DECK The timber-decked patio creates an outdoor room, which adds to the sense of a complete indoor-outdoor experience. The transition from indoors to covered patio, and from there to the poolside lounge area is seamless and integrated. The built-in server includes a wood-burning stove and food prep area. The stone wall brings an earthy, landscaped element to the outdoor entertainment area.

LIVING AREA In the lounge area, the fabrics are kept to a neutral palette of blues, greys and beiges. The Long Island 2 sofas and the Echoes Armchair are both from Roche Bobois.

“The house has an intimate quality because it is compact and contained,” he adds. “There are no rambling passages; spaces are all interlinked and well connected.” The lower, courtyard living level includes a lounge, a kitchen area, dining room and guest cloak room, with the entertainment patio and pool in the front. Above the kitchen there’s a study, which could also be used as a fourth bedroom. Above the dining room there’s a separate bedroom suite and a bathroom. The master bedroom, dressing.
