This house was designed in 1999 and completed in 2001. The owner collects contemporary Chinese brush paintings and appreciates works that feature strong, bold brush work. The semi-detached house was designed as a linear stroke, a dramatic verandah overlooking a 25m pool. Architectural devices include folding, sliding, rhythm and repetition. The internal arrangement features the common party wall as a double volume gallery, lit from above by a clerestory window, and animated by reflection pools and the staircase.
