Beautiful Buildings Around The World Part 3 - Drift House on Little Much Farm
Three distinct blocks are constructed along the slope of the hill keeping the number of retaining walls to a minimum. The central block is double volume and connects to the upper floor of the western block and the lower floor of the eastern block. The blocks are tied together by a deck which is on the first floor of one block, the ground floor of another and then the garden and the entry ramp.
The interiors are just as spectacular as the exteriors - notice how the triangular trusses are celebrated rather than being hidden behind ceiling board. In this house angles (and triangles) are celebrated!
I love the slide next to the staircase - big enough for adults indulging their inner child...
Drift House is a spectacular building and I look forward to seeing more of Shonan Purie Trehan and LAB's work.
