The Glasshouse Project has won many awards from Local Council. The challenge was to make the most of the panorama offered by the steep section and to fit a modern luxury family home into a tight building envelope. The house is a stage for a modern life with freedom of choice, undefined boundaries, continuity between the exterior to the interior, light and darkness and a constant and intimate interaction with nature. Construction and detailing is elegant, precise and carefully thought out,but never over explained. The colors and materials for this building where chosen in order to create a sense/feeling of harmony, modernity and luxury while the sculptures of Gianni Aspras on the walls of the living rooms create abstract and modern warm emotions. The main entrance to the house is through the upper level where a Clear glass pivot door opens to a large grand foyer next to the main formal lounge that shares an open kitchen, formal dining room and guest bedroom. In this same level the house has a rumpus room, family room, bedroom with a bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. All space enjoys the visual characteristic that gets impressive as you go through the big glass doors, to the upper level terrace.All aspects of the interior were designed including fittings, furniture and finishes. Fully integrated fridges and concealed appliances mean the kitchen effectively packs away when work is done. Interior part-height walls allow natural light to penetrate the kitchen, and encouraging airflow. Walk through the front door to an amazing open plan area that is designed specifically to take in the breathtaking views. The enormous concertina doors that separate inside from out open completely to change the space into one large luxurious area. Access to the lower level is through a hallway with special lighting, rhythm and proportion characteristics that invite you to walk down. The way to the lower level is guided by the light that enters through oversized openings that play in a rhythm of verticalities and join the visitor to reach the visual of a huge glass window same as the others in proportions but bigger that frames part of the work: outside vegetation.The house is positioned within the slope of the site allowing for the house to sit within the planning controls of height in relation to boundary. It also allows the house to be positioned similar to other houses on the street. The positioning also allows the house to relate to the natural contours of the land and the longitudinal, main focus of the house to the mountain views and a connection to the sun at the north and west connections off the main living areas.
