Description by architect: This residence is a modern rural retreat, a second home away from the client’s inner city penthouse. Designed to be minimalistic in detail, robust and functional, while maintaining a country charm and strong connection to the rural landscape, each space within the new extension sits in perfect harmony with its surrounds.
