A close working relationship between the builder, Bellevarde Constructions, architect, BJP Architects, and ACOR culimated in a spectacular, award-winning residence. The family home features a 2.5m wide triple glass atrium that runs through all three levels capturing northerly light and views. The glass bottom and end of wall of the pool delivers light into the lower areas of the house, as well as creating a sensation, while swimming, of floating over the waters of Pittwater.
The engineering challenge included integration of reinforced concrete to resist water pressure at the glass and concrete junctions. The large span of the roof required a creative approach to utilise the central gutter as a major structural element.
