Basically, the concept for the farmhouse at Ploverslakes is based on the traditional corugated iron roofed farmhouse vernacular of the area. Furthermore, the architectural opportunity to express the buildings as a layered continuation of the earth formation it is built on, was exploited.The layered stonework is topped by off shuttered concrete ringbeams, supporting the corrugated iron roofs, with its "lightness" expressed internally by the white roof structures and ceilings.
Like in nature, everything is left unchanged, unpretentious.
Great care was taken to emphasize transparancy through the buildings by means of frameless glass walls that can be opened completely.
The plan of the house simulates that of a lodge, as circulation takes place through nature raher than the conventional passages.
