To accommodate a grade that occasionally measures 60 degrees, the site is organizedinto terraces, and the interior of the home was strategically planned to encourageprofound interaction with the immediate landscape and distant horizon.

The lower level of the rectangular-plan house, for example, is laid out as one spacedivided into zones, and has two dark concrete walls that heighten the sense of weightlessnessof their glass counterparts. All levels are connected by a three-story steel staircasethat enhance the feeling of inhabiting the sky. The house is clad in Siberian pine and will acquire a grey patina over time.
