completion summer 2012

This house is cut into a hillside site, presenting a long, low traditional form to the entrance side and approach. The house fully opens to generous and formally arranged internal accommodation (500m² total) all of which can enjoy a wide private terrace and pool.
Built to the lowest energy consumptive standards, the house exudes the warmth and comfort of timber detailing.
Large sliding permeable shutters to the double height private face provide additional solar shading and winter protection as well as further security, whilst always maintaining views over the grounds and surrounding landscape.
