Entry Description

A human-made object in nature may exist in harmony or disparity. Our goal was to deepen this home’s connection to the environment, creating a place where our clients can live immersed within an exceptional landscape. Taking care to protect and restore the land, we suspended the renovated house between two California hills, where it overlooks a rushing waterfall and spans the creek below. The remodel retains 50% of the existing wood structure. A steel frame beneath the original floors anchors the home to the rocky hillsides – thus allowing us to remove supporting columns from the creek bed.
