Long, lean and full of glass somewhat describes the Longley House by Room 11. It does remind me of some of the case study houses or “California mid century” homes. The view and location really lend themselves well to the design, the structure seems to flow with the landscape. The materials chosen work well together, the stacked stone echoes with its surroundings. Of course, who doesn’t love a conversation pit?
An exacting house for exacting clients – The home is a slim black clad building tucked beneath the apex of a ridge on an expansive rural site in Lower Longley. From the interior to the north the curve line of the opposing ridge is framed. This line eventually makes its way towards the Derwent Estury’s Northwest Bay to the East. The distant view of Northwest Bay and surrounding farmland is framed with the entire building from the Eastern extent of the home.
