House in a Tea Garden

 Back to Projects list
1-5 Stories

Set in a tea plantation, the house was designed to minimize the impact of its footprint on the landscape. Several inexpensive mock-ups were used to determine the optimum location both from the perspective minimizing impact as well as the framing of potential views. The house is covered in a cantilevered metal roof that floats above the verandah and reflects the tea garden below. A form-finished concrete tube forms the central circulation spine for the house, with interior spaces finished in richly textured natural wood.
