Vistas and shapes in many directions

This is a crafted building from an intuitive mind. The house takes advantage of the steep sloping site, appearing as an organism moulded into the landscape from one angle and a tower house from other. Due to the bent plan and the falling roof, the shape is hard to pin down. A discreet opening on the side of the larch clad walls allows entry into an unexpected dramatic high space within, with vistas and shapes in many directions.
