A single form houses the downstairs living, eating and cooking with bedroom and additional living above. Additional sleeping spaces are in a separate structure – the two forms relating to each other across a grassed courtyard.

The language is comprised of rough sawn boards and expanded aluminum mesh screens, all unified in a monochromatic white palette. Retractable glazing within the line of the screens creates open living and sleeping verandas for the enjoyment of the summer months.
