ARCA Unlimited was commissioned to design this family home in Boardwalk Meander Estate. The design had to take advantage of the beautiful surrounds and view onto a dam as well as the slope of the site, whilst providing privacy from public spaces and walkways. Entering the house, a large visual staircase takes you downstairs to the open plan living area that spills out onto a large patio with a physical and visual link to the surroundings. The site and view opens up to you as you walk down into this space. Raised above the public walkways, this living area and garden connects you to the environment, without impacting on your privacy.
