“Let your home appear to grow easily from its site and shape it to sympathise with the surroundings if Nature is manifest there.”
The inspiration behind the design and construction of Aquila was the ‘organic’ architectural ideals of the famed American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. The guiding principle being that a building should sit in harmony with its natural surroundings and landscape.
The stone and cedar home is a tour de force of craftsmanship – the hand made quality and careful integration of site, structure, materials and view, combine to make it the quintessential mountain retreat.
Local stone masons spent eighteen months meticulously erecting the blue stone walls, selecting the right stone for its place. Danish carpenters completed the super structure in oregon and cedar, framing the views from every room, and fastidiously selecting each beam and panel for its colour and character.
This painstaking effort, and attention to detail, has delivered a building in accord with its dramatic natural surrounds. This harmony is what makes Aquila such a peaceful, relaxing, and rejuvenating environment in which to holiday and unwind.
