Inspiration from architect:

The form of the house responds to its rectilinear orientation by maximising the path of the sun and creating an internal, private aspect for its habitants.

The house bows in both plan and section, maximising available sunlight to the courtyard garden and defining a double storey street frontage which creates intimacy to the two upper bedrooms.
