Architect JASON BAILEY has created as much outdoor space as possible, as well as ensuring these areas are protected from the often inclement weather. While this living area is open plan, a level change loosely delineates the lounge from the kitchen. 48 The house is designed to be used by two families at the same time or independently. Two almost identical pavilions lead via links from the main living pavilion. Each pavilion contains a main bedroom suite, together with bunk rooms. If only one family is using the house, each wing can be easily partitioned.
