Creating a sense of seamlessness between outside and in.

Sight-lines and solar exposure were carefully considered to that effect. The selection of durable materials such as brick, concrete and zinc panelling speaks to the desire of the clients to live in a residence that will gracefully acquire patina and texture that lasts and projects lasting character that gracefully embeds itself into the neighbourhood.
