This contemporary house takes advantage of the favorable condition that results from breaking architectural volumes apart: variety in experience and penetrating natural light. Ascending stone walls carry visitors through an entry garden to the main entrance, and continues up to splendid views from the home’s green roof. A glass connector containing the main living area spans the gap between master suite and guest quarters. Weathered cedar boards complement stone elements, while bronze cased windows create contrast. Concern for both comfort and the environment are addressed in details such as radiant heating, and geothermal HVAC.
