Originally designed for a young couple, this compact home, on a tight site, comprises of two stepped North-East facing pavilions to provide privacy and maximize views. Simple pine rafters are exposed and a screed floor and concrete kitchen complete the paired down look and feel of this home. A viewing deck above the third bedroom maximizes available space, making use of the surrounding views. Optimal orientation with high level windows and a wood burning stove regulate temperature within the house in winter and summer.
