This level is a retreat for work, with the window placement carefully considered to allow light without glare and minimise direct sunlight onto the large collection of books contained within. Cabinetry (desks, shelving, storage, and a small kitchenette) hovers above the parquet floor, visually extending the compact space.
A subtle pink textured plaster finish has been applied to the walls and ceiling. A large pivoting door opens to a small garden space between the Fontbunker and the existing house, with a custom bronze handle by local artist Ben Pearce.
The upper level, clad in black anodised aluminium, and accessed by an external cantilevered concrete stair, contains the guest accommodation - a bedroom, storage, and small bathroom. This level is lighter, with expansive views out over the rooftop of the house and the wider suburb to the west.
The guest space is wrapped in soft and warm materials - woollen carpet on the floors and cedar boards lining walls and ceiling.
