ENTERING A SCULPTURAL BUILDING

On entering the site the immediate experience is that of a sculpture in a planted landscape setting. Vehicles are not visible because they are positioned below ground. The topography, tree planting and building shape provide shelter from the wind and other elements.

The entrance door comes into view as the visitor travels further into the site and is the welcoming introduction to the dwelling within the sculpture. Light and shade play a big part in the sculptural form alongside low reflective materials.
