Ruschena - Stevens residence
The owners of this inner suburban family home wanted to focus on energy water and general resource efficiency. They needed the garden to combat food miles through organic edible produce. With a young and expanding family there was a higher priority to integrate play throughout allowing safe but adventurous passage.
It became apparent that the focus feature would be an entertainment space for extended family gatherings adjacent to kitchen. A plan evolved and the space matured.
The long term plan included future renovations for the west end of house to include green roof with shade structure space for meditation / entertainment in Spring and Autumn.
