Private yet permeable, Oriel sits back from the street with its slatted carport gate allowing an urban vista. Its sculptural and bold wall reaches out to welcome the visitor. Several other thick walls create a cavernous and shaded interior.
The internal spaces consist of two blocks connected with a study bridge, creating several courtyards that breathe light and air into the home. This is a house for those who enjoy the interior, yet appreciate many different outdoor spaces.
