The Origami House by Jane D Burnside Architects
A journey over water: Constructed entirely on one level for lifetime access, the house and carport are a single composition of eight pavilions connected across the burn by the broad footbridge overlooking the dam, waterfall and burn – sometimes a raging torrent, others a calm trickle. To the southerly dam, the house presents a monolithic façade with cut-out windows positioned to take in the views and sunlight yet control privacy from the road. To the northwest, the house opens up with a continuous series of five glazed gable corners onto a wide westerly terrace that embraces the open rural landscape.
