The design is inspired from the natural contours of the site. The ground adjacent to the dwelling remains unchanged, sloping from the northeast to the southwest, retaining the potential to conceal the building.
A gravel track, branching off the existing drive, follows the contour of the sloping ground. From the parking and drop off point, level access is provided to the entrance and first floor living spaces. From this point, the dwelling appears as though it is a one-storey building, reminiscent of a discreet agricultural barn.
