The home spans nearly 3,900 square feet and was completely remodeled in extended about a decade ago in 2002. The home lies in Battery Point in the suburb of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, and thanks to all of the glass used in the construction, the home features waterfront views from just about any room.

 “This airy pavillion of steel and glass captures seemingly endless vistas of water and sky, whilst maintaining a humble and unassuming street entry. The lap pool is pivotal to the entire design, and in careful composition of the pool atrium glazing and elegant steel structure, a dramatic play of volume and light is created. Passive solar principles were engaged to reduce energy consumption in a structure mostly glazed.”
