This extremely modest residence floats over the entire site with a minimum impact on the original typography and vegetation. Elevating the house off the ground also allow the site naturally drain.
Open planed house has powerful interior-exterior relationship with the use of glazed facades and viewing decks looking to desert scenery. The uses of repetitive members allow the house to be shop fabricated and assembled on the site.
