The house overlooking the water of Sydney’s northern beaches, designed by local architects Chenchow Little Architects, who was received ‘The Most Innovative Use of Steel Award’ in the 2007 Housing Industry Association Awards.

The unique use of dark folding screens surrounding the different levels of the house. Closed they present a secure and bold structure, foreboding from the outside yet cosy and safe on the inside. But once open, the house is flooded with light and open to the elements becoming part of the surroundings and presenting a welcoming home which makes the most of the spectacular views over the water. With beautiful design comes functionality, the screens protect from the climate changes.
