The exterior of the Cliff house is comprised almost entirely of teak over a rainscreen system, thermally broken steel windows, and a fascia of natural zinc that was aged prior to installation on site.

The rugged character of the site surrounding the house was kept as natural as possible, while a warm wood front door welcomes visitors to the home.

Upon entering the home, the large windows perfectly frame the views, and in the living room, a large locally-sourced granite fireplace, crafted by James Hamblin, becomes the focal point of the room.

The walls throughout the house, like in the dining room, have been finished with plaster to create a soft, mottled finish in contrast to the sharp lines of steel that punctuate the architecture.

Nearly of the counters and vanities in the home, like in the kitchen, have been made primarily of concrete, and feature integrated sinks.

The master bedroom was envisioned with a low wood ceiling to provide a sense of privacy in contrast to the walls composed almost entirely of glass on two sides.

A circular staircase made from bent I-beams and wood leads from the main floor of the home down to the game room that shows off a major piece of the natural bedrock from the site. A steel railing with large bike spokes as the infill adds a fun and unique detailing, while lighting in the bottom of each stair tread softly highlights the granite bedrock beneath it in the evenings.

The guest bedrooms were intentionally kept intimate to encourage guests to spend time in the public spaces of the home and the outdoors. Custom built-in beds helped create a unique look in each room and to save on space.
