“Form follows emotion rather than function, as every space becomes another opportunity for rest, reflection and exploration”.
“And although the house needed to accommodate a large number of guests, architects didn’t want to dominate the landscape with oversized volumes”.
“This courtyard becomes the focal point of the house, seamlessly connected to the living room and kitchen volumes and looking over the pool and gardens beyond”.
“Their separation further reduces the overall impact of the house and cleanly divides social and private space”.
Hand-built stone walls are sharply confident; traditionally rendered, round-edged volumes are perfectly flat and smooth.
