situated on a prominent corner plot, this terraced property – designed by HYLA architects – uses a slatted timber screen to preserve the dwelling’s privacy. the cladding covers the entire lateral elevation, ensuring seclusion while still providing light and ventilation. at the front of the house, an enclosed outdoor terrace adjoins a double-height living space, which features a distinctive book shelf that extends across two storeys. the open plan ground floor boasts large floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that open onto a lush garden at the side of the residence.
