An idea exercise to consider qualities and aspects of a house designed for a Hermit – an introvert with primary interest in privacy, seclusion and security. The approach starts with a simple concrete bunker with a defensive profile and limited views. Inspiration is drawn from spiral shells, mushrooms, bunkers and lighthouses. The project initiated greater examination into concrete as a building material best suited for concealment and construction below grade. Ideas of privacy and security are integral to every house design.
