Further Project Explanation

The brief for this project was to extend and alter the previous house to meet the needs of an expanding family and to enrich and enliven the experience of living in the home. The house has been re-oriented to take advantage of the unique characteristics of the site towards the lake and nestle back against the valley hillside for protection and the best sustainable design. The design had to be sensitive to the rural nature of the site and nearby buildings but with a contemporary twist.
