Located on pasture lands adjacent the Williams River in Seaham the new home is formed around 3 main conditions. The existing access road, lined by ornamental pears. The south west view to the river and the open and exposed nature of the site.


These conditions lead to a courtyard building allowing the new dwelling to form a sanctuary in the center of the plan while still allowing a sense of prospect. The idea of the haha wall is exploited to prevent the need for fencing while still keeping out unwanted visitors. This allows the building to sit lightly on the pasture land and at some points float above it.
