Look at this house from the street, it’s difficult to imagine that a very different and beautiful landscape awaits inside. This visually dramatic home is a perfect fusion between east and west… Japanese and Australian design.

The Wall House is called such because it acts as the boundary between a residential street and the peaceful garden and ocean view beyond it. The Japanese designer who owns this house can no doubt enjoy tranquillity offered by his open home whilst conveying privacy and restraint.

The twisted form of its roof, a study with an appropriate view, and a bath presenting the ocean scenery are just some of the evident aspects which make this house undeniably made by designers, for a designer.
