Working carefully with the topography, the split-level house sits between granite outcrops and existing garden. The two wings of the house are connected by a glass link that forms the main entry and provides glimpses to a large granite outcrop and the studio beyond.

The main living areas of the house are located upstairs, inverting the traditional housing typology. The living area is filled with natural light and look out over the valley and the canopies of the surrounding trees. The house has four bedrooms, each having framed views of the outside landscape.
