coalesce // the unification of built form

My proposal seeks to answer how a dwelling can reside in its environment seamlessly, protect its inhabitants and showcase its surroundings. Whilst immersing the dwelling in the landscape from the northern street level the ground floor is able to seamlessly hover above the ground and showcase the contours of the landscape. The juxtaposition of the pure form hovering over the rugged sloped landscape at the ground floor level vs the lower ground dwelling sitting within the earth itself shows how architecture deals with the natural; in unity and contrast seamlessly.
