Reflected light provides an ever changing pattern across the white interior

The decision to locate this black-timbered house in a rocky depression close to the water’s edge means it is able to engage less directly with the nearby road, have a reduced profile in the landscape and develop a stronger connection with the sea. The fully glazed end wall of the main living space frames a spectacular view across the water to rugged hills, while reflected light provides an ever changing pattern across the white interior. There is a persuasive integrity to the rigorous use of rectangular forms, the limited palette of colour and materials, and the purity of minimalist detailing.
