Commissioned to build a guest suite and an artist's studio that are some distance apart, London-based firm Carmody Groarke adds a 40-meter subterranean passage. The former task embodies the development of a welcoming pavilion-like structure that is situated on a lake and houses a bedroom, a bathroom and a small kitchen. The latter structure boasts a redesign of an 18th-century farmhouse. The ruin-like aesthetic of the artist's studio is apparent with the combination of brick and weathering steel which instills an old-timey character and a handmade quality.

Carmody Groarke connects the two pavilions with the subterranean passage that is not only a childhood novelty but also a means of offering "a very special and secluded experience."
