More after the break.

The house was built by architects for their family in 1968 in a Brutalist-style; it is “raw exposed concrete, exposed joists”.  According to the architects, the house as they found it was a series of small, tight rooms that had little relation to the landscape.  The strategy was to open up the house to the landscape, and give it an open-plan while preserving the structural and graphic qualities of the house – in particular, the exposed materials and its use of contrast to delineate the different moments of architectural intervention between the white palette of the concrete/canvas of the house and the black palette of the steel/intervention upon the house.
