This datum was copied as a “cover” over itself thus the two skimming parallel floor plates, which gladly cantilever over the current mansion esque sandstone storm cellar dividers.

The First Floor shingle box remains generally passive from the waterway side. Liberal course zones welcome the client upon passage. A wedge-formed joinery box gliding in arrangement like an island, isolates the dissemination zones from the primary Living Zone, and along these lines elevate the experience of the excursion through the space.

The Main Living Zone is a twisted tube molded structure with the Kitchen as the support. From this space, huge perspectives can be gotten of the neighborhood normal region. The house itself identifies with its rectilinear rural connection at it’s road edge, and it’s more regular shapes and natural lines on the non-road side. It arrives fundamentally that the house mirrors it’s most prominent impact: the waterway.
