Gabriel Poole is one of Australia's outstanding architectural talents. The mainstay of his practice has been the design of original houses that touch the land very lightly. Poole’s projects are distinguished by a sensitive response to climate and place and by an exploratory attitude to structure, construction and materials. Quadropod House was originally designed for a family who wished to enjoy uncomplicated but comfortable living. The two-level, three-bedroom house enjoys commanding views and is elegant in its lines and modular spaces. 'My objective is to provide for the here and now. I would hope that my buildings give visual pleasure to those who see them and spiritual pleasure to those who dwell in them.' Gabriel Poole.
