Simple forms and natural materials define this modern residence. The primary rectangular volume is clad largely in full height glass, except on the west elevation. It embraces natural light and the views of both foreground pool and landscape within its garden walls, and beyond of the mature tree canopy in this established neighborhood. The ground floor spaces spill into the landscape as the house recesses into its corner lot. The masonry garden wall merges with the north façade to reinforce the connection between inside and out.
A cantilevered porte cochere defines the axis to the entry and stair volume beyond. Secondary access from the traditional front yard frames a cross axis to the pool and guest house beyond.
The second level spaces are wrapped by a continuous balcony which incorporates a brise soleil to manage morning sun on this east exposure. Copper, steel and Douglas Fir complete a material palette intended to patina and soften as its surrounding landscape matures.
Construction commences in December of 2018.
