Originally conceived as a sculpture whose planes, structure and joints were articulated in primary colours, this idea changed to camouflage, using subtle autumn colours, and vertical landscape meshes between the garden and the house, to dissolve the solid vertical planes leaving only transparent openings linking internal and external spaces.

The construction of the in situ slab, steel frame and suspended steel wings with its glazed roofs, heat pump and passive energy collection was undertaken by specialist contractors, while the insulated ply and double glazed walling and all internal construction and finishes were by carried out by students from the AA School of Architecture, alongside Ian Ritchie Architects and Hanscomb QS. The entire project managed by Ian Ritchie Architects. It was completed in 1981.
