house of the week 038: T-house

The late Simon Ungers (with Tom Kinslow) designed this retreat on a 40-acre wooded site for for an aspiring writer and his 10,000-book collection. The library peeks over the treetops symbolizing the clients lofty aspirations whilst the living spaces contained in the base of the house is grounded into the hillside.
