House Roos / Sable Hills
Located in a typical rather dense suburban residential estate, the house attempts to block out its surroundings, by responding to a pleasant central and north facing courtyard.
The courtyard becomes the centre of all activity and all rooms spill out onto this space, which also accommodates an entertainment deck and a small splash pool. The architecture is timeless and relies on very simple and clean lines, interrupted by “light boxes” that invite natural light into the house.
