A two level family home built into the hillside of a sloping site on a small peninsula between Charteris Bay and Diamond Harbour, Banks Peninsula.
The stone-clad base holding bedrooms is sunken into the land while extensive glazing opens the living level up to dramatic views. An organic roof form floats above this with the fascia clad in GRC paneling.
