This AIA Award winning house is situated on a small lot in an established neighborhood with houses of mixed architectural styles. The southern half of the land has a wooded ravine with a major drainage channel traversing its length, while the other half was only very steep. The site presents open space and panoramic views to the west; the access is from the east.

The design accommodates the needs of two career professionals and their two children. The house is zoned for privacy and acoustics and includes a separate entrance for a professional studio. A safe, level driveway was essential. Energy efficiency, natural light, ventilation, and ease of maintenance were high priorities, but so were spatial delight and aesthetics.
