House Simpson - Auldearn
GABRIËL FAGAN ARCHITECTS: Architect
Click to view map
House Auldearn was designed with a view to establishing an integrated and horizontal relationship with the landscape in stark contrast to Fagan's other work. It maintains a strong singular form but digs into and straddles a hill, echoing a Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie approach. The house provides a rich spatial experience. A small internal planted courtyard creates a focus at the end of the passageway to the bedrooms. The glazed roof above allows light and sun to enter and provides a connection to the sky above.
