The steep sloping terrain and expansive views of the alpine landscape were essential in defining the form of the house. Two linear volumes intersect at the main living space connecting the guest and master wings. The pool volume continues into the forest; terminating as it cantilevers over a seasonal creek. The material palette complements the natural setting of the house: wood siding, concrete walls, stone masses and expanses of glass create a strong connection to the landscape.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Pools: One Last Look Before Summer's End
What the heck is going on here? I don't know, but it's really cool. The beautiful photography adds to this surreal space.
Lisa Frederick added this to Strokes of Genius: 8 Stunning Lap Pools
This is a simply ingenious approach. A glass wall at one end of the home transforms a simple lap pool into an aquarium-style display, set off by the serene, wooded setting. It lends the illusion that the water floats in midair.
