Entry Description

The Owner envisioned a two story house, but it seemed too
imposing on the site. We presented this design as a way to
respect the beautiful grassy slope and integrate with the
environment. By nestling the house against the trees we
created a datum line with nature. The driveway engages
the garage at the uphill side allowing the house
unencumbered views downslope. The basement was
divided with two openings so the slope could engage the
main level. We enhanced the existing stream with 3 small
ponds, using excavated fill from the daylight basement. The
Owner is thrilled with the design.
