This project engages the fifth elevation with carefully considered roof forms defining a dramatic arrival sequence that commences above the site. Simplicity and complexity combine in this rural home, where the folded roof plane hovers above a sequence of internal rooms contained by three-quarter-height walls, with a finely detailed glazed panel to the underside of a floating ceiling. The subtle, muted tones of natural-finish timber, and-board-form concrete to the interior sit quietly as a backdrop to long-range views out to sea. The more restrained guest quarters extend the geometry and profile of the main building and complete a finely crafted duo of buildings.
