Building on the Boundary – Four Homes Perched on the Edge


In this video I explore four homes built on boundaries. It’s a look at how a home can challenge the natural environment and occupy the boundary between architectural convention and stunning natural beauty.

When confronted with a design brief and an undeveloped site, architects often look to the edges of that site for inspiration and meaningful architectural solutions. These boundaries, both real and imagined, are exciting places in which to build. The boundary often gives rise to the form of the building, its materials and even how it’s structured.
