The owners chose this plot because it has views of the ocean, the golf course and the dam as well as an area of indigenous forest in front.
A series of freestanding walls provides a clever means of breaking up areas within the open-plan living area: the kitchen and TV lounge are separated from the dining room by a low wall and a taller wall gives the formal lounge some seclusion from the dining space.
