The backyard, with landscaping by Huettl Landscape Design, has a patio space with a path that leads you to the corner seating area.

A circular opening creates a view of the sky, and at the same time, creates a distinct shadow on the grass below.

Back inside, the living areas are all connected by a floating cedar ceiling.

There’s a slender screen that runs the height of the front stairwell, that casts rays of sunlight inside during the day.

At night the screen emits horizontal stripes from the stairwell’s lighting, creating a lantern effect seen by anyone on the exterior of the home.
