Featured on Grand Designs Australia, the Yuille residence is characterised by the u-shape foundation of the layout with a saltwater pool being central to the design. Favoured by a northern orientation, most of the half-acre block is dedicated to outdoor living with a tennis court, alfresco and entertaining area at the rear of the property.
A fundamental design component of the Yuille residence and a significant challenge of the project was achieving the floating roof line. A complex one-degree fall was constructed to avoid flooding, creating a roof that appears to hover above the ground. At the same time, the near-flat roof allows unobstructed views from the upstairs master bedroom to the pool, tennis court and beyond.
