The Mai Mai House by Pattersons Architects.
“This is a private house. It seeks to create a union which reconciles seemingly contrary identities, personalities and problems. In this house these two lovers – the hunter and the bird, as we have grown to call them – make sense of the elements that define them as individuals, and the chemistry that draws them together as a couple. A key to unlocking the Mai Mai is in the word ‘duality’. The house uses a duality of function and a duality of meaning to reconcile paradoxical ideas of concealment and display, ambush and retreat, challenge and reconciliation.”
