Nestled upon 10 acres of stunning yet challenging terrain, the building site posed a unique opportunity for the architects to create something extraordinary, breaking away from conventional home designs. Instead of resisting the land’s natural characteristics, they collaborated harmoniously with the environment, crafting a home with flat roof lines and an elongated profile that seamlessly blends into the site’s inherent beauty.
