This deceptively simple house takes advantage of its place in the landscape and the views offered by the site. The entry space slices through the building, delineating major building elements. With both outdoor and indoor qualities, the entry offers a consistant reference to the landscape as one moves through the house. A split-level arrangement allows both privacy and accessibility to the pool. Exposed structure migrates from outside to inside, connecting these rooms with outdoor spaces. The house features copper roofing exposed to view under generous eaves, aromatic cedar beams and rafters, leuder limestone and trowel-burnished natural stucco.
