These pages: The main axis through this new house by Craig Steere Architects 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. Proceeding pages: External screens bring privacy to the glass pavilions that define the living spaces. The vertical pod element, which is clad in zinc, pierces the roof to enclose a service deck. search | save | share at
