Walk around the site and you can literally feel why it’s amazing.
Experience driven, the house taps into all your senses, you can smell the line of eucalyptus trees, feel the salt water air, experience the subtle breeze, and grasp the scale of this building in relation to you. There is clearly a narrative to this building and the elements on site really do all the speaking, you’re simply the guest.
Their ability to test what materials could be & redefine stereotypical understanding of those materials is relentless and impressive. This is seen in the use of steel as the chosen material for the building framework (atypical of the time), it's also seen in their earlier work as they explore compound curves with molded plywood in their 30 year chair investigation.
In my own experience, when you can achieve that sense of harmony in what you do, you never want to stop. It’s addictive and more then ever, it makes you feel alive, instilled with the desire to continue exploring, venturing, & learning. At the core of our pursuits, isn't that we're all trying to do?
