A Landscape for Living

Photo by David Wakely

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In this view looking toward the entry, you can see how stair and wall stabilize the hill and anchor the house while giving the main living spaces breathing room. The courtyard stones are pavers recycled from a village in China that was slated to be submerged for the Three Gorges Dam.A flat living roof covers most of the house like an extension of the hillside, and it's punctuated by shed roofs rising over the living room, kitchen/dining area and master bedroom. These are angled to capture the views, promote airflow and hold photovoltaic and solar hot water panels.

Again, We would like this to be the focus of the house. Need to make sure it gets enough sunlight to be warm in the summer. No green roof. Need another story.
