When Simple is Best...

A sculptural black + white box, 
set amongst the gum trees,
was designed to focus on the garden,
in this extension to an old cottage.
Would you like a splash of orange 
with your black and white box?
This is the work of
Sydney architect Christopher Polly.
It's so simple
And yet, the simple designs 
are often the hardest to achieve.
It's all about getting 
the proportions
just right.
It's a narrow space, 
but the spectacular ceiling height 
makes it feel open and full of light.
While the emphasis is all about the garden

Neat, and simple. 
It just works
