A new house conceptually developed from a local historical reference of former boat houses. The residence provides for a simple holiday house visually linked to the open rural lands to it rear. The two major gable roofed buildings provide the main areas, while a glazed stair between forms the entry and a break in the overall mass. Materials were selected for their inherent texture and colour, with a view to allowing them to fade naturally into the local environment, with little maintenance.
