Architecture

The low horizontal form of the building is juxtaposed with a vertical rhythm of the elevation treatment with solid and void elements set in a layered timber screen breaking up the massing and aligning it with the solid and void nature of the surrounding woods.  Upon approach, a visual ambiguity is created between site and dwelling, between light and dark, creating glimpses towards and through the trees.
