The client wanted a contemporary home that would maximize the views while providing privacy. The challenge was to create a homestead that would allow the client to age in place, maximize views within a limited footprint, and have an amazing outdoor living experience. The design and construction of the project was complicated when solid rock was found on the site. The topography dropped off so quickly, decks were designed with steel beams that were cantilevered out the back, thereby minimizing the footprint.

An infinity edge pool with hot tub and fire feature was built in the far corner shelf off of the outdoor living area. The pool deck was designed to be a porch with a fireplace, a large-screen TV, an outdoor kitchen, multiple seating arrangements, a Corten steel raised planter, a fountain outside the guest room, and glass railings to clear the view.

From the Judges
Judges noted the complicated site and the home’s “amazing integration” into the hillside. They praised the beautiful indoor-outdoor space, the use of materials, and the great mix of product.
