The Glen Eira House nestles comfortably into the streetscape with subtlety, appearing behind what appears to be a narrow street frontage.
Positioned on more than 1,300 square metres, visitors to the Glen Eira house are met with a biophilic line-of-sight and the unexpected depth of the property. Experienced through the entrance breezeway, feature steel doors and large panes of glass, the true scale of the Glen Eira house is perceived via an eye that carries all the way through to the rear landscaping of the project.
Internally, the placement of the staircase at the Glen Eira house proved to be the catalyst for the unfolding of the entire project. Underpinning the ethos of connectivity within the home, the staircase creates a bond between the basement and upstairs zones, resonating as the projects heart. Depicting an artery that is integral to the function of the home, the staircase connects every communal room within the Glen Eira house and offers a complimenting symmetrical feature to the other geometric shapes found throughout the home.
