Located on an escarpment overlooking Snug Bay, Elms House is a relaxed home on a moderate incline. The house design revolves around a deep central courtyard, oriented to capture northwestern sunshine, with a guest wing that opens to the courtyard from screened bedrooms. Bespoke joinery pairs with a neutral interior, creating a building of quiet dignity, while the low proportion and secluded atmosphere combine to inspire a feeling of security and stillness.
