The basic structure of this house is inspired by a rural village set up, however it is executed with precise geometry, lines and an open plan. The massing is very complimentary in terms of the fa├žade and the current voids in the house. This house has almost 6000 square feet of living space. The set up, being inspired by traditional rural house nearby, the architects have accomodated for very unique things within the layout of the house. There is a common wall, in the house that is shared by a cowshed on the other side. The aluminum pipes on the front facade, act as a sun shield and allow light to filter into the house in a pattern like manner. The earthy tones and powder coated wood finish all add to the nature complementary aspect of the house.
