'Linking a new contemporary house to an established garden with spectacular views requires bold design. In this garden a large stainless steel edged deck extends out from the house, projecting over an ornamental pool, allowing views of the valley and hills beyond. The water reflects the surrounding established trees and is enhanced by glass sculptures. The house walls are mainly glazed and the lush, blocks of colourful perennial plants are enjoyed from every angle within the house's open and minimalist interior.'
