Location: Western Coast, Island

Project Work Status: Ongoing Projects

Project Started: 2009

This idyllic site, sits on on elevated cliff; 12m above on isolated beach on the Western coast of the Island. The primal quality of the landscape prompted the evolution of framing the horizon; vertically crossed with the framing of ruinous church spire to the east.

The house in this instance is visualised as a body of timeless brute os a continuum of the horizon. The classical; almost platonic intersection of vertical and horizontal voids transforms into o floating beacon of light From the horizon.

The ultimate aim is to directly engage the site without pretence
