Points of view are essential to this house, which looks very different depending on how you come at it. From the street, it appears to be little more than a tiny, traditional workers cottage, just over four meters wide. But peek down the laneway and you’ll see a mass of pink breeze blocks, vines entwined through them, flowers spilling out over glass, wood, and concrete. “It's quite spectacular,” Eve concedes.
Inside, a palette of warm greens, and browns delineates its spaces, marking a passage from the old to the new. At the center, a glass-walled corridor connects the two, while a small green internal courtyard injects a sense of calm that permeates the whole building. It’s an easeful, elegant, and grounded home to the photographer, her husband Jon, and their two young daughters, Elliot, and June. Pleasingly for Eve, it offers up a new view almost every day.
