"I will always remember the first night we spent there. Lying in bed, looking through a wall of glass at the eucalyptus tree and the tropical plants in the garden, was like going to sleep in a forest. The rest of the house was equally amazing. It felt like we were living in a huge wooden tent, with windows everywhere open to the garden. The walls were kept to a minimum to ensure basic privacy without destroying the feel of the house. Clever little touches like the frosted glass 'light traps' in the bathrooms seemed to catch the sunlight and give plenty of illumination throughout the the day. The kitchen was another treasure trove of little touches: beautiful frosted glass lights hung from the ceilings like suns, and a huge window in the dining area made every night feel like an outdoor picnic. Unlike all the modernist houses we had visited, this one felt immediately like home." --- Laura Buller, Resident 1988-1999
