The 'Interior Long View'
Two Gable Forms- Living + Sleeping
Storage in thickened walls and columns

The house is composed of 2 gable forms in a cruciform layout – one long and slender and the other wide and short. The long gable is a single, open plan space, along which ‘living’ moves slowly along during the course of the day and the movement of the sun. The construction is in timber, the scale is intimate. The wide gable is the static and slow form, where the sleeping rooms are located. The construction is in concrete and plaster and forms the protective shield. To allow a cleared, open and single-space living plan, all storage and utilities are built into the thickened walls and columns. The important spatial aspect is the long view through the house body.
