Gianni Botsford designed this RIBA international award winning residence for his father who is a writer. Corrugated steel sheeting enwraps an open studio space with a library, desk, and grand piano, everything a writer needs. The louvered glass windows on the opposite facade provide a spectacular view of the sea shore. The second pavilion has bedrooms and restrooms. Both pavilions are parallel, sitting on stilts. The weather necessitates a prominant roof, but openings on both ends allow sweeping breezes to natural cool the house.
This house connects the occupant sensitively to its surrounding nature, and the house itself is built from local materials. Using original methods, it adapts to local environment, climate, and culture.
