Michael and Kana Corrie’s home has been purposefully designed and built to incorporate elements of Japanese and Australian lifestyle and culture. When planning their new home, Michael and Kana wanted water to have a large presence. However, they also wanted to build a sustainable and water efficient home. What has resulted is a beautiful, ecologically sensitive home that celebrates the cultural significance of water responsibly without detracting from its meaning or the Corrie’s enjoyment of it.
