A spur of land pushing out due north over a valley below and with ranges to the west we knew if we could anchor this into the site we'd create something special. Instead of using the existing cut platform and foregoing lawn space ATA decided to cut in adjacent and float our living wing right over this to create a large landscaped space bathed in sun and sheltered from the prevailing winds.
