The Stone, beneath the sky, stood cold –

Between the runes, a vapour strolled

...a cloak of fleecy fog consoled

  • The Quest, Terry O’Leary

This second home has a rather peculiar story. Spasm was commissioned to demolish an existing structure, which was deemed structurally unfit for occupation, and build a new home on the same site. An in depth study, prompted us to reimagine the idea of occupying the site.
Many radical strategies were adopted
_ retaining and recycling the debris of the demolished building as a mound.
_ the sleeping spaces as an introverted assembly around existing trees on the ground level, where one descends into the coolness and comfort of the earth.
_the main pavilion-esque living space on the upper faces the north, overlooking the mature trees which stood on site.
_ the pool sits at the upper level terrace and seems to rise out of the mound.
