He's done so by designing a covered, outdoor terrace that provides a seamless connection from the kitchen/living area to the pool.
Again concrete is the dominant feature. The entire ground floor of the home features a burnished concrete floor that extends out onto the terrace, while overhead the concrete roof plane extends out from the house and over the top of the outdoor area.
The piece-de-resistance in this outdoor space is a large, retractable glass skylight. Not only does it admit light into the kitchen/living space, it effectively doubles its size. On a summer's day, the bi-fold aluminium doors separating the two spaces can be fully opened, as can the skylight, to create a wonderful, extended entertaining area. Should it rain, the glass skylight can be retracted to weather-proof the terrace.
Elsewhere inside the home, concrete is used judiciously - and in balance with other materials - as interior wall classing, including for the stairs and stairwell.
Bennett says the owners originally favoured a Class One finish for the exposed concrete surfaces, but took little convincing to opt for the rawness of off-form finishing.
"The beauty of concrete is its imperfections," he says.
"The aluminium panelling provides the 'perfect', manufactured finish. You need something to contrast that, and off-form concrete does it beautifully."
The end result is a home that is as stunningly beautiful as it is comfortable and practical - a statement for contemporary, urban living.
