At first sight the house appears less like a house than a concrete sculpture, emerging from the ground. At one end the roof appears half buried, with grass and trees growing on its tilted profile. There are few clues to indicate that people live here – no driveway, few windows, sloping walls and no visible roof. Even the tennis court has been carved into the site.
Once inside however the living spaces, lit from above, open out to an elongated terrace and the garden beyond. Sliding screens enable the space to be configured as required. The bedrooms above are included in this spatial arrangement with internal views of the living spaces below, and garden views through floor to ceiling glass.
