This house with an unusual architecture is situated in a suburb of Sydney. It has a simple L-shaped plan incarnated by Durbach Block Jaggers Architects. But at the same time, it is full of interesting architectural ideas. Due to the shape of the home, the impression is received as though the house embraces incredibly beautiful garden located in internal court. The most of the windows are oriented to the northern sun and the garden. The facade of the house tilts and lifts in some parts of it, providing light to the ground floor. The house was a winner of Horbury Hunt in Residential Category in 2010 and in 2011 NSW AIA Architecture Award.

This unusual Garden house was designed by Tham & Videgard Hansson Architect Agency in Södermanland, Sweden. It is a triangular two-storeyed structure entirely covered by the wooden trellis which serves not only as the decorative element but also as the fence for the terrace which is on the roof of the building providing the inhabitants with the views of the local landscape. A big two-level winter garden is located in the acute angle of the house where it has a glass façade. Depending on each room’s function even some windows are covered by this lozenged wooden structure. The trellis seems to be entirely covered with the greenery someday. Construction is all wood, both structure and finishes. The house looks very interesting due to its unusual structure.
The main idea of Guz Architects was to create the hi-tech house close to the nature. The Cluny house that is in the centre of the project is spiritualized by water and plants that surround the pavilion and give the impression of the real nature in every bit of the house. Speaking about technologies the house is equipped with state of the art EIB systems, photovoltaic cells, solar water heaters and security systems; they are integrated discreetly and work with the natural environment of the house rather than against it. The designers managed to show a combination of technology, careful planning and sensitive design. The house looks very beautiful and relaxing and in the same time it is functional and modern.
