Discussions with long-time friends about designing a home for them came to fruition when the client – a builder and project manager himself – purchased a hilltop lot with beautiful views to the surrounding landscape. The client wanted to take advantage of the sloping site, maximizing views while maintaining privacy, and create a home that was both dynamic and relaxing at the same time, a combination of precision and beautiful simplicity. A central court connects soaring shed-roofed structures which includes an accessory dwelling unit (also known as a mother-in-law apartment). The house is planned with accessibility in mind so the owner can gracefully age-in-place.
