The site is a long, slender plot facing the edge of a forest. The diagonal offers view of the heath. The clients wanted to shut the house off to the adjacent buildings in order to have an exclusive experience of the forest. They wanted the house to create a spatial frame for large dinner parties and at the same time provide intimacy.

The section is an interpretation of the local building regulations in order to create maximum ceiling height and natural light. The facade is a lapped cladding in solid oak boards treated with iron sulfate, which protects the wood and creates the weathered surface. Oak architectural facade – a highly durable, moderately stable material which offers a contemporary look with attractive figuring.

The furnishing of the interior is created by the skewing of the plan, which creates hidden storage space and a hidden entrance covered by oak panels. The floor is polished concrete with built-in heating.
