'The position of this house overlooking a beautiful valley and treescape below, called for careful regarding and retention of the slope. Gabions in-filled with a local stone retain the slope, whilst also linking the house to its surroundings. A cantilevered deck, with glass balustrade, from the main living room enjoys the best of the views, whilst a lower lounging deck with a stainless steel pool is surrounded by a very minimal planting of grasses and perennials.'
