Project summary

We think of this project as a collection of distinctive rooms gathered under a large, singular roof.

One is cavernous like a cave, its openings simple and unadorned allowing garden views to feel amplified in their sharpness. This room gains light from above which makes it feel subterranean and massive.

The next room is low, domestic and contains a window seat and subtle surface embellishments on the walls and ceiling which are painted in matt grey-green paint which make the room subtly decorative.

The final room is small, tall andshaped like a simple hut . It is painted in a deep, intense grey-blue and addresses a secretive courtyard garden.

A verandah of a raw, simple materials contains a long external timber ledge which will be the perfect place for potted plants and sitting in the half-shade.
