Wow! I'm with ya.
That is a gorgeous, pure, building. It looks like it is at once a temple, yet also comfortably settling into the landscape. The organic surfaces are wonderful; inverted, softly curving battered walls, the "melting" roof and the strong composition of solid and void.

I bet you'd get a lot of "huh?!" responses from contractors trying to bid that building out haha.

Thanks for sharing.

Terrific and innovative- site driven and client specific...
Perhaps best understood as a real world cottage from the Shire (Lord of the Rings)
Tragic that it burned.
Thanks Kevin!
