Leichhardt House

Leichhardt House

Stepping to a garden

A fall of 2m from front to rear yielded a series of tiered spaces. The floor steps twice whilst the ceiling steps once, creating a variety of heights – 2.5m, 3.6m, 3.2m. A unified palette of oak flooring, white joinery and lightly toned stone and concrete creates a subtle spatial quality. Circular landscape gestures contrast to the rectilinearity of the dwelling.
