This project's location in a heavily wooded canyon, and the Owner's sensibility, called for a rustic design.
Our team designed the interior and exterior of this house in a warm style that combined Arts and Crafts elements with a rustic "National Parks" sensibility
The project was executed as a feasibility study and master plan.

|The hillside site made the entry passage from garage to front door into a steep climb. We envisioned the area as a sort of vertical garden, with a fountain creating a tiny grotto under the front door landing, plants spilling over walls and slender Eucalyptus trees (trees removed for clarity) in the center of the area, casting a lacy light over the vertical surfaces.|
|Because the garage would become the only structure visible from the street--and therefor become the house's public face--we gave the structure more attention than a garage would generally receive. It had its own trellis work, windows and planters, echoing elements used throughout the project. A tower form anchored a busy portal between the house and a heavily used garden patio.|
