The Canterbury Residence, designed by Canny is a graceful contemporary home, inspired by the summer breeze and sun. Lets start with the terrace. Two words to describe it: absolutely stunning! Perceived as a floating wooden island, lost in the middle of the swimming pool, the terrace is a gorgeous place to sit and enjoy your lemonade on a hot summer day or to relax and listen to the whisper of nature, at dawn. The fully-tiled pool with granite stepping stones marries in beautifully with the stonework of the adjacent alfresco area; and the spotted gum decking flows from the polished floorboards of the main living area to provide an inviting exterior island oasis.
The residence is characterised by transparence and breeziness.
