Client Brief Two new houses designed to maximize light and views. The landscaping including courtyards and pool area are part of the brief.
Parlante Solution The client enjoyed the work of Frank Lloyd Wright which influenced the design and materials of the house. The integration of the landscaping and house allowed for a scheme that flowed seamlessly from interior to exterior. Both architecture and landscaping were treated in a similar way with courtyards, verandahs and swimming pools becoming extensions of the interior both visually and functionally. Finishes are the same inside and out, with details such as walls of glass that disappear into cavity walls, blurring the boundaries and enhancing the integrated approach to the design.
