The clients’ brief was very particular when it came to the live/work spatial relationship. They worked from home, so needed the two functions within the same plot, but they also wanted to keep them as separate as possible. “The tricky part was that while at home, you shouldn’t see the office and vice versa”, explains Saunders. Taking his cue from the tight brief and using the restrictions given by the terrain and orientation, as often is the case with projects built outside of an urban environment, Saunders moved forward with the design.
