From the architect. Taking the existing site conditions into consideration, the architects chose to avoid disturbing both the stone pathways and root structure of the mature oak trees by using a single footing and tube frame system.

The structural system, originally inspired by a chairlift tower, provides the opportunity for the main living area of the house to float out into the existing oak canopy.

The 2,382 sqf interior is divided into two legs with kitchen and living on the cantilevered leg and spacious lanai with adjacent pool located within the other. The two bedrooms are at the heart of the plan, where the two legs merge.
