Description Change this

The House Havens is the best known work of Harwell Hamilton Harris. It was renovated and expanded in 1968. Havens wanted a house to take out the most of the magnificent views. Built on a slope of 35 degrees and hidden behind a red wooden fence two meters high, the house is divided into two volumes. The small east wing, comprising a garage and a utility room, runs along the hillside. A sunken courtyard separates this small wing of the main two-storey building located to the west, which is accessed through a covered bridge dramatic. Set free the slope, the house faces an open space to all sides.
