This large double-story home was a much bolder step towards blurring the line between building and landscape. The site is closely surrounded by other large houses so the need to ‘construct’ views for many of the rooms at the lower level was critical. We designed dramatic walls, that curve and run around the building to create framed green spaces, carefully planted to be lush green ‘lungs’ that rooms can both look at and open onto. Also conceived as a white box by the client, we explored textures, transparencies and strong forms to give the building a personality.
