The existing century old farm house sitting on stilts on an elevated rocky site needed an upgrade and an addition to accommodate their relatives when they visit. Rather than merging the new with the old, our design separated the new guest house from the existing house entirely, connected with a bridge. A rammed earth wall extending from the roof to the cliff bottom forms the thermal mass for the house whilst most of the house is lightweight construction which is ideal for the site.
