grimwade house

Riding low over uneven ground, the five interconnecting pavilions of the Grimwade house sit serenely in the landscape. Typical of our practice, the house expresses a considered relationship between site, aspect and architecture. It is constructed in honest, natural, warm and unadorned materials, with terracotta-tile floors, western red cedar wall cladding, fly-screened breezeways with a continuous Vermiculite ceiling. The limestone of the walls was quarried onsite.
