The Georgian Windward House and its new West Wing has been conceived as a meandering journey. The West Wing’s form is subtly modelled to echo the undulations of the adjacent meadows, with green roofs planted with native wildflowers. Partially embedded in the hillside, it interlocks with the old farmhouse to create sheltered courtyards between high stone walls. This and the Pool House use locally sourced or reclaimed stone. Windward House has been conceived as a sequence of galleries: rooflights sculpt and funnel light from above, and windows frame the landscape as works of art, with pieces from the owner’s collection as foreground.
