During construction of the home at 45 Faber Park, architecture firm Ong & Ong were faced with the challenge of keeping as much of the surrounding environment intact as possible. Despite the preservationist preferences of the client, the house borne from the design process stands out dramatically against its natural backdrop. The most prominent design element is the upper volume of the home, cantilevered past a natural stone base, clad in black metal paneling. Windows are cut into the paneling, visually lightening what is otherwise a dominant element. Natural materials such as teak decking and marble abound throughout, countering the more modern elements. The lower level employs sliding glass panels that allow interior livings spaces to merge seamlessly with outdoor living spaces and provide pool access.
