From my sketchbook: Rivendell


20050218.1327

Concept sketches for an unrealised early project. Rivendell was the whimsical name of the sprawling rural site in Mount Martha, for which we proposed a house partially embedded into hillside. Our design was composed of an off-form concrete, partially subterranean volume linking to a series of above ground, timber towers. The project was to achieve a balance between raw terrain and delicate, finely crafted objects, the former part of the landscape and the latter growing from it.
