Design Ambassador, Shane Denman, chose Fingal House as his Ambassador's Choice this month for the way the design wraps around a 135-year old tree to really blur inside and out. The changing seasonal patterns and a close relationship with the environment have become part of everyday living at Fingal House. That's largely due to designer Justin Twohill's philosophy that dwellings should closely interact with their environment while working with the local intricacies including climactic patterns, solar paths, topography, flora and fauna. "He's really captured the feeling of being quite a modest house that feels grand when you're there. With the blur between inside and out - you really feel like the whole site is the house, which is fantastic."
