The new four storey residence has the entry at street level with another three storeys built on the vertical cliff facade and connecting with the rear landscape. From street level half of the building is camouflaged by a green roof which slopes to seamlessly connect with the meridian streetscape. The flat rear green roof section is a turfed amenity space of 40 sqm with beautiful views over Sugarloaf Creek & National Park. The  front sloped section is 40sqm and providing access from the residence entry, garage and meridian strip. A slope stabilising system was used to prevent slippage onto the front meridian area. The slope has a border of pollinating native plants (as the owner produces honey commercially). Walter Raleigh turf is laid in between edging and covers the rear open space area with spectacular views to the rear of the property..
