Project Work Status: Ongoing Projects

Project Duration: 2007 - 2008

The site was bland [a basic inland plot with no trees or aspect)... prompting the studio to use a bizarre start point to evolve this project; an opportunity to test an untried idea- The image of (Cary Grant) running while being chased by a low flying biplane in the film; North by North West - [Alfred Hitchcock). The sharp geometries and extension of parallel planes were shaped to create the fluid inhabitation of Ibis house.

Concrete slabs- wings, will extend into the landscape, the pool at rotated axis will create focus in the entertainment area which employs an earth berm to serve as a gently sloping lawn to entertain.

African timbers will be used for shading screens and pergolas and over the years will reflect age through the ashen grace.
