An​ occupiable sculpture

The main living spaces are elevated to the same level as the mountain peak - the result being a plan permeated by landscape; the expansive views of the landscape being pulled right into the interior living space through proximity to the untamed landscape in the courtyard.

Architectural concrete

Detailed to emphasize the planar nature of the floor and roof plates,  the exterior facade is largely glazed, with angular columns continuing from the ground through to the roof.

Interiors 

From the living spaces the facade to the courtyard is exclusively frameless glass to minimise the separation between the interior and exterior space.

Where possible the raw concrete structure is exposed throughout the interior.

Detailing

Large format porcelain tile fully wraps the master bath. Here the tub carves into the floor plate immersing the bather in the monolithic structure of the house. A floating teak mat covers the adjoining shower floor and continues through to the exterior terrace with additional outdoor shower.
