The character of the house is defined by its ample glass openings, slatted wood surfaces and fiberglass grated decks that allow light filtration to a daylight basement. The exterior is minimalistic and sophisticated with exposed concrete, untrimmed cedar siding and purposely imperfect recycled wood. Structural steel columns and flying buttress-like supports add an industrial feel to the home and several areas can be used as outdoor/indoor rooms.
Aside from the use of reclaimed wood, other sustainable features include passive solar and thermal massing technology. The giant windows, natural look of the wood clad exterior, green roof and deck easily blend the house right into its breathtaking surroundings.
