The remote location of the lot along with a desire to minimize the environmental impact caused by the construction of a new cottage resulted in a structure which was largely crafted off-site.
Leading the way from the master bedroom to the private study above is a custom spiral staircase that almost seems like a giant cage with steps concealed within!
