booklovers house

COMPLETED 2006 | 2,000 S.F.

Inspired by the sweep of the shoreline and orientation to the sun, this off grid residence and its garden form an oval in plan. The sunny courtyard is shaped and contained by the main house to the north and gate house/utility buildings to the south. These elements are connected by garden walls and trellis structures. The remainder of the site is left as a natural forest, and the abundant sun is harnessed through the solar panels.
