Sited on the edge of a 70-metre high cliff, the plan of Holman House refers to Picasso’s painting The Bather. It contains a complex series of fluid living spaces set within a meandering perimeter that arcs, folds and stretches in response to sun, landscape and views.

Living and dining areas cantilever out over the ocean, allowing dramatic views up and down the coast. The lower floor forms a base that is built from rough stone walls like an extension of the cliff below. These walls continue along the cliff edge to form a series of eccentric terraced gardens and a vase-shaped rock pool.

Leaf house is located in a garden setting surrounded by rugged bush, on an escarpment overlooking a beach on the Pacific Ocean coast. The building aims to match the exceptional beauty of its site, integrating architecture and landscape to provide inhabitants with the experience of being both inside and in-the-environment at the same time.
