During the summer months, the ‘Cloaked House’ disappears into landscape, as nature consumes the building, and the glass walls reflect its ever-changing forms which could be a little challenging for the birds.
In winter the bare branches make way for the sun to seep through the glazed facade, warming the home. Sandwiched between two horizontal slabs of concrete, the design of the home has been meticulously considered to complement the surrounding setting. As such, the wooden terrace, which extends out from the open-plan living space and cantilevers over the hillside, is perforated by trees.
Designed by 3r Ernesto, inside, the neutral palette and use of wood maintains the seamless relationship between the architecture and the setting. The close proximity of furniture to nature, separated only by a wall of glass, offers a unique experience which differs depending on season.
