This house is a garden is a house is a... setting that calls for a design that just makes a house blend with its bucolic asset. Existing hedges become outermost facade walls, requiring only a plinth and a roof plane to define and extend inside out, and turning the entirety of the outside into a house of delight. An orchard of service berry trees, composed to existing mature solitary trees, makes an elementary outdoor hypostyle. Joy for the bucolic is the spirit of making a place of a garden that is a house, rather than placing a house in a garden.
