Contemporary house design

This house design was tailored to a particular site in a very open and elevated field where wind shelter, view capture and creating some initial detail on site to set out the beginnings of a landscaping plan were important. The house is essentially two key building forms that are staggered in plan to create a sheltered external patio space facing the rural views link with a flat roofed section. The siting of the building also creates some privacy from the main road.
