@Simpson-Lee House_as a cave!

Architect : Glenn Murcutt

Location : Mount Wilson, Australia

The Simpson-Lee house has proven to be a landmark project for Glenn, through his further development of ideas and principles relating to ‘place’. Located NW of Sydney in pristine surrounds and bordering National Park, the house is oriented to face NE, sheltering from cold W/SW winds, whilst capturing the panorama of neighbouring ranges. The delicate treatment of materials and construction techniques serve to emulate the filtering of light through foliage, as is characteristic of the Australian bush, the elegance of elements such as the louvred north face (able to be completely retracted) enphasise and allow the intimate relationship between buiding and landscape.– from the ozetecture website.
