Designed specifically to suit narrow, inner-city sites, the Leanline uses vertical space cleverly to create a home that’s both beautiful and functional. From the street, the large roof plane forms generous eaves, supported by timber-clad, ‘blade’ walls that frame the edges of the areas below. To one side is a large, recessed, double-height entry space—acting as a focal point that welcomes you into the house and draws you in. Light pours in from the window above you and illuminates the long, angled timber-clad wall to the edge of the entry. This wall stretches to the end of the long corridor, which ends in a double-height window overlooking the garden. Here, the floor of the upper level is set back, creating a void above that allows light to flood into the space. Turning to one side with the timber-clad wall at your back, you see the combined living, dining and kitchen areas, and behind them a long line of glass doors that open on to the outdoor terrace and garden beyond.
