The Nature of Place
The dwelling is located on a secluded, wooded site, bound by two steep-banked creeks. The house and associated buildings are placed in a meadow of native wildflowers, surrounded by exceptional specimen redwood trees, Douglas fir, aromatic bay laurels and anchored by a legend oak growing out of the creek bank. A roof plane floats over the building elements, drawing the eye to the landscape. The house reveals itself quietly, a subtle presence within the forest.
