The overriding philosophy has been to deliver a design that is ‘naturally belonging’ – With its glass enclosure, the effect created is of a floating open platform, revealing when occupied the full impact of the surrounding mountains. One is literally suspended in space and surrounded by the foliage of trees. A building that grows from the landscape and compliments the site.
