"The design of this project is driven by passive sustainable design principles.
As such, the house is designed as two discrete volumes (one double and one single storey) connected by a low level link between two courtyards. With north to the rear of the site, Pop sited the double storey volume at the street front to maximise light penetration and natural ventilation into all habitable spaces. The courtyards have been used as a device to increase the number of north facing rooms.
The facade is made up of a series of different forms to reduce the scale of the building within the streetscape and create multi-aspect rooms." Via Pop Architecture
