Behind the Design

Quietly perched in an enviable setting, this design is a modest and reductive insertion into the natural environment. Designed for a pie shaped lot, the strong monolithic facade creates the illusion of a more expansive home, while its simplicity acts a counter to the rugged terrain. Almost bunker-esque in its expression, the residence is anchored to the site, focused on its connections outward. Through a complex interlinking between solid and void, the structure demonstrates programmatic and experiential continuity. Drawing on the geometric cues of the nearby mountain range, the angled rooflines open the residence up to the breathtaking views beyond. Reduced to a minimum, humble yet commanding materials were chosen in response to the setting, intended to resemble pre-existing natural objects in their context.
