Citation

A house is transformed in every way with the addition of a modest extension in this bravura piece of house design.  Great confidence is displayed in the building language, airy spaces and the formation of dramatic openings to the landscape The tone of the low-key materials used combines with the calm sunny interior to suggest an enviable lifestyle in a relaxed relationship with the site.
