The simple advantages of working at home or living at your place of work: when you’re done, you can treat yourself to a canoe trip; or you could start the day angling for your breakfast. As volumes, the houses look as though they have just moored at the waterside. At the landward entrance, the house keeps its special spatial qualities a surprise for the while. The facade makes a self-enclosed impression, like a castle tower; it’s a bit sculptural. I refer to the brick-built section as ‘living on land’ in the winter house.
