Spanning approximately 70 square metres on a larger site of 650 square metres, Tent House makes clever use of the smaller space and tricky triangular sloping walls by adding statement pieces, such as a spiral staircase.
It was a smarter alternative to a vertical ladder, while regular stairs would need a pitch that wouldn't work aesthetically with the home's triangular shape.
Originally, he planned to paint the staircase black, but that would have distracted from the white scheme.
"It's now a standout feature of the home, an artwork in its own right," says Chris.
On minimalist style
Chris intentionally paired back the home.
"There are no artworks on the walls, no door handles or locks or architraves on the floor. It's all about the shadows, lines and shapes created by the Tent House structure. It's stripped back, yet comforting."
He also carefully curated the furniture choices, adding that he "adores" his Casala Casalino original dining chairs which are complementary to the staircase.
