Determined to create a home that could provide solitude and seclusion without rejecting the city around them, the design makes clever use of the surrounding building’s windowless façades, allowing an open plan building to reveal its interior without compromising the family’s privacy. The team liken the finished project to ‘a clearing in the midst of a forest’.
