Social spaces are located along the South elevation, and are separated from the two-storey entrance hall by half-height walls, allowing the more public parts of the house to be open and light — with the bedrooms located within the stone plinth, or towards the back of the site where the house sits within the context of mature trees.

The house reacts to the existing site topography, sitting within the levels to create a comfortable response to context.

Although a substantial home, Lynwood will sit quietly on an existing residential street, with a simple uncomplicated aesthetic, which compliments the neighbouring Victorian properties, and the mature woodland on the site.
