The design uses a dry-stone wall as the knuckle between the rectangular form of the main house and the bedroom wing, which is buried into the hillside under a green sedum roof.

Inspiration from architect:

Ty Hedfan meaning ‘hovering house’, is an exploration of the practice’s interest in highly site specific and contextual architecture which takes its cue from the traditional Welsh long house form and the topographical constraints of the site.
