Residential Architecture: Villa Storingavika by Saunders Architecture: “..a pale timber volume enrobed in a crisp, ‘pleated’ dark timber exterior..“My primary aim,” Saunders recalls, “was to create more open space than the site first offered by reclaiming as much outdoor space as possible”. The house is oriented along the contours of the site and concrete stairs link an upper outdoor terrace with a lower lawn, utilising all of the natural terrain. This also minimises the impact of the house on the topography. Built-in concrete furniture is also integrated into the site, increasing the use of the lower terrace as an extension of the interior space..” Abundant natural light, excellent views..
