A new modern rural dwelling built with rammed earth, concrete, timber, glass and steel set in a formal orchard garden. A platform links three rammed earth pavilions together and a large water element connects the whole to the earth on the east side. The connection to the panoramic view is intimate and varied. Strong, clear and site responsive formal geometries unify the landscape with the house. The monumentality of the construction addresses both the exposed condition and recalls the local vernacular rammed earth chicory kilns. A thorough exercise in place-making.
