The site for this project is a corner lot with slopes in two directions. The home was constructed according to a design that took full advantage of the site grade and proximity to woodlands. The glass enclosed living/dining space extends majestically into the landscape providing excellent views. This house is an exposition of the use of diverse materials and design details that are enhanced by the ever changing light and shadows.
