New single dwelling & swimming pool for the extended family

About the project

This new dwelling is currently under construction. The brief was a for a comfortable single level living home with a separate guest area and a large basement garage. The site was an existing shale quarry, a very baron site. But this brings with it an opportunity to rehabilitate the land back to its natural beauty.
