This new house is offset from its neighbours to maintain privacy for each and continue the existing sense of small buildings floating irregularly within a continuous layer of vegetation. The main floor level is raised, providing views through the site at ground level and allowing space for informal uses underneath. Internally, the house is subdivided into an arrangement of many different rooms, each with its own relationship to the enclosing roof volume. Each space is both discrete and connects to at least two others, allowing many possible circulation paths and different groupings of people and activities within a compact footprint.
