Preceding pages: External screens bring privacy to the glass pavilions that define the living spaces in this new house by Craig Steere Architects. The vertical pod element, which is clad in zinc, pierces the roof to enclose a service deck. These pages: The main axis through the house is defined by articulated battens that begin as a vertical screen on the exterior. The battens fold over to form a textural ceiling that runs the length of the house, linking the formal and informal living areas, and wrapping down a pergola at the rear of the house (left). Pathways down both sides of the house provide direct access to the barbecue area. search | save | share at
