All though non-contemporary this project hold an interesting post colonial vernacular and appears as a home we have all seen before and admired. This is the whole point, that the aim of this project was not to create the new, but to embrace the old, the familiar and go back to the roots of what it feels to be home. Sensation is a positive instrument of architecture and there are times that it is necessary to divorce what is seen in magazines to invoke the familiar senses of what is known to derive a fully sense of satisfaction in a home owner This project is all about roots and country living. As such the architecture is intended to extend on this experience.
