The Architect’s overriding intention for this modern 2-story family home centered on achieving an intimate connection between the ‘L’ shaped residence and its setting within a rolling hillside clearing.

Siting the home carefully amidst old growth oaks and framing views architecturally, the connection to nature is reflected by an abundance of vistas that capture the rolling hills, wild life, and broad valley views from almost every aspect of the house, connecting the inner and outer environments seamlessly.

Entrance to the home is achieved beneath an enclosed 2nd-story bridge that connects the Main Living areas to the Master Suite. The compressed stair sequence travels under the “bridge” upward revealing a sunny courtyard adjacent to the Main Residence, separate Guest Wing, and outdoor living spaces.

Materials such as concrete, weathered steel, and natural cedar mirror the site’s native textural and color palette while floor-to-ceiling glass completes the building envelope, connecting the tree canopy to the landscape.

Product Description. In order to create the desired “Indoor/Outdoor Living experience” within the home, floor to ceiling glass required special production, installation and engineering.  Fleetwood provided an excellent product.
