Our house fuses Japanese and Western influences. We are on a surf beach, which allows us to view the waves from a tatami platform.
We wanted the house to feel simple and elegant, and knew that achieving this would require a great commitment of time and skill by everyone involved.
The essence of such a house is that the effort and complexity of building it is nowhere visible; only those who look closely are rewarded with the exquisite attention to the finest detail. It took twenty-two months to achieve.
Because John is driven by his deep love for building only the most beautiful and challenging of houses, he attracts people who are deeply proud of their skills; people who love the opportunity to work to their best. I now believe he is the only builder with the experience, the skills and the passion to have built this house.
We wake up each day in awe and appreciation of its beauty and surroundings.
