The stone wall that marked the boundaries of the property ran around the whole site, and passers-by could only see the treetops. Although the materiality and the irregularity of the wall geometry gave it a particular character and presence, the planning regulations now in force obliged the street to be widened, making it impossible to preserve the wall. In its absence, the first and greatest challenge for the project was to re-contextualize the plot with a new house that could engage with its surroundings in a coherent, respectful and honest way.
