Description: Backyard view. The Batchelor pad and it's garden are inseparable in Darryl Butler’s and Graeme Cheater's minds, they had set out to achieve an open style of living in which the house and the garden are seamlessly integrated. The relatively small house flows into the various rooms and outdoor living space they have created on their half-acre block. The home, is basically unlined except for the roof, which is heavily insulated and projects out everywhere around the house to shade it and keep the water out. The walls are single skin featuring one layer of lining on the outside. Replacing expensive manufactured glass windows, polycarbonate plastic, both clear and tinted according to location, is screwed onto the window frames. All windows can be pushed out with a stick for optimum flow through cooling. It's an open pavilion design, not unlike a Balinese hotel foyer, with some private areas that are screened.
