At the western end of the guest house is a bespoke operable facade. The architects approached a local engineering company Cram Fluid Power, and together they collaborated to turn the concept design drawings into a working system. Hydraulic cylinders hidden in the sub floor operate six full height copper louvre panels providing control of solar heat gain, views and light, that can be opened and closed at the touch of a button.

Inside, there’s a living room with a vaulted ceiling and views from windows on three sides of the guest house.

From the outside, there’s a deck that meets the swimming pool.

The deck can be accessed from the dining room that sits behind the living room. Both sides of the guest house open up to a deck, allowing them to act as ‘winter’ and ‘summer’ decks to enable the occupants to use the building mass as sun or wind protection moving to each side as favored.
