The client's brief was to create a piece of sculpture emerging from the natural landscape.
Echoing its older brother, Wilson Cottage, the physical form of the house is one of a robust concrete shell, rising from the rocks littering the hillside.
02. Site Investigation
Our ongoing work on Lizard Island has given us a unique opportunity to record the incredibly beautiful and remote island using 3D laser scanning.
Where the investigation of the site is so critical, and site visits are so difficult, we’ve been able to explore, walk through, and design right into the landscape, allowing us a new level of site responsive design.
The Villa is slowly growing out of the landscape.
