A compound of WOW today. This is not your run-of-the-mill old-timey classic of modest proportions, but rather an epic legacy work by notable Mid-Century architect John Adam, set within the gorgeous native garden design by similarly admired contemporary (and Ellis Stones protegee) Gordon Ford (who also shared a close working relationship with Alistair Knox), all topped off with a current-day and relatively harmonious extension and snazzy-up by present-day firm, Zen Architects.
All in all, this is a huge cross-discipline, cross-generational work of astounding presence and pedigree.
