The clients wanted their home to blend in with the hillside as much as possible. We accomplished this by literally embedding this eloquent, contemporary home in a hill on their land. Intermingled within the trees, the house overlooks a fantastic view of the river valley below.

The architectural details, such as the cantilevered hallway, make this home unique. Clean synthesis of glass and steel is the immediate distinctive aesthetic that catches the eye, but unlike most residential homes, its structure is composed mainly of red iron and engineered lumber. Built on a grid system, the house took much precision and technical detail to construct. From the paver roofing to the polished concrete floor that sits in a pan deck, the architectural design of this home truly is one of a kind.
