Precedent: House at Lake Connewarre, Kerstin Thompson

When I first saw this house published I didn't really get it, there didn't seem to be enough, I was bored by it. But now I realise thats what's good about it, it's really un-pretentious, almost un-authored. It uses almost banal standard construction and materials and is draped over the site without any resistance or big gestures. But the plan and its subtle clever cranks makes it seem so liveable.

I also heard it was pretty cheap for the winner of the best residence in the national awards.
