Challenged by a dominant neighbouring residence, southwesterly views and fire risk from adjoining bushland, the end result is a modern home of rare luxury.

An enormous galley kitchen with bench-height corner glazing opens to views across the city, while a mirrored splashback reflects a sublime, infinity edge swimming pool. Additional features include a personalised workspace, accommodation for six cars and a deep, freestanding stone bath.

Beyond the contemporary opulence, this is a home designed as a place for a family to work, entertain and live with space for growing children.
