"The unit easily adapts to the imagination and invention of the tenant and in doing so also re-defines the range of activities that can take place in the ‘home’", state the architects, pointing out how, in this project, the house integrates many life events, beside the basic function of "inhabitance".
The architects sought to create a space that would maintain the key aspects of the hospitality experience, while escaping the characteristics of what is usually described as a resort. "We have created a place reminiscent of looking out to sea from the deck of a ship," state the architects.
