Situated on the boundary of a natural preserve this house takes full benefit of the continuous natural scenery that it faces. The complex consists of the major residence building and the garage, guest space building which are separated by a courtyard. The home structure is a rectangle, in sketch, with the lengthy side collected of large glass doors and windows that face the view. The plan is basically open with living -dining room and family room separated by a free-standing cabinet.
The living –dining space is large with its 14 foot high ceilings and clear story windows. It opens to the kitchen which runs vertical to the main space. The kitchen has a series of sliding doors that disappear into a wall resultant in the exterior eating patio and the kitchen to be unified as one eating cooking environment. The form of the house is conceived as a series of folding roof planes clad in factory painted charcoal gray metal. At points the folded walls lift up revealing pour in rest concrete walls that are part of the first floor enclosure. A wood grained phenoelic resin clad “box” protrudes from the house. The wood grained resin panel box thrusts into the house, contain the kitchen, and introducing a warm hue to compliment the palette of natural materials. A fire pit is the focus of this outdoor living space. There is a physically powerful indoor outdoor connection unbreakable by large sliding doors and glass walls that visually mix the interiors with the exterior.
