Toko Ngawa House

The design arranges mono-pitched roofs parallel to the slopes at the top of the cliff-edge and retains skyline trees, minimizing the bulk and impact of the building from the coast. The house is located at the end of the headland ridge and laid out like a necklace of spaces around the contour, leaving a flat area for lawn and outdoor terraces to the north and west. Where contours bend in the plan, the logical elements of the design bend too, colliding just as the formations of Split Apple Rock collide on the waterline below.
