If you have looked at ‘Wind and Water’, you’ll know why we really like the work of this firm of architects. Their use of natural materials makes every building both unique and immensely habitable.

The wonderful green roof and stone walls in this home really separate it from its neighbours and the outside world.  The views are inward and the design creates it’s own micro-climate, providing cool respite in a hot climate.

The photographs and plans speak for themselves but, as always, we’d like to know what you think of this home.  Click on any image to start lightbox display.  Use your Esc key to close the lightbox.  You can also view the images as a slideshow if you prefer  8-)
