NOTABLE FEATURES / COMMENTS
This house has panoramic sea views to the north, but backs onto a busy road to the South. For this reason the design was conceived as a series of curving screen walls which embrace the house and insulate it from the traffic noise on the South, while opening up the desirable light and views to the North. In addition, the new house sits adjacent to an existing manor house, so the design had maintain privacy for both while still optimising view and light opportunities. A wall with vertical planting was employed as a device to accomplish this.
