A 3500 sf residence designed around a 25m lap pool sunken into the ground, located in a gated community 500 feet above the valley floor. The developer of the community created home site by leveling the existing natural mountain features. This project carves back into the site as well as hovers over it, in order to restore its original dramatic topographical features. The building is aligned to capture desert and city views. A 25m pool is the datum used to arrange the public and private spaces.
