Riverfront house

Riverfacing cottages in a mango orchard

This weekend retreat is for a film director. The house sits at the far end of a mango orchard and on the banks of a perennial river. The house comprises three cottages surrounding a contoured garden. The smaller cottages sit on the riverbank and have terraces hovering over the river. The larger cottage houses the living space and the kitchen. The slate roof, stone floor and the ochre walls give the house a serene Balinese feel.
