The existing dwelling, set against the mountain slopes of Llandudno overlooking the Atlantic, required extensive alterations and additions. The footprint of the existing house was used as a platform from where the new structure unfolded.
The building is protected on its south-eastern edge by natural boulders, which allow openness in this direction. Elsewhere, the accommodation is more enclosed, but punctured and cut open to allow views to the mountain and reserve. At platform level, the house opens up to the views northwards over the Atlantic.
