What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Build a Bridge
This entry walkway helps lessen the home's footprint on the site by requiring less grading on the natural slope.
Becky Harris added this to Modernizing the A-frame
Oh heck, let's get a big shot of that exterior - it's such a great house.
Designed by the same architect, this house melds into a small hill that angles down and across the front of the house. The bridge entry heightens the impact of this sloping landscape.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Curb Appeal Begs Your Attention
WindowsAwning, casement, double hung, slider, fixed, round, elliptical, Palladian, trapezoidal ... windows come in an almost unlimited range of functions, sizes, shapes and colors. Yet there are conventions for why you should use one type over another. For example, casement windows (the ones that open like doors, with hinges on the side) are a good choice for many styles (Prairie, Craftsman, even modern) but totally wrong for a colonial design. Simply put, the one large piece of glass all in one plane is just too monolithic and two dimensional for a colonial-style home (unless the design leans toward a more modern and stripped-down version of the colonial).

This house melds into a small hill that angles down and across the front of the house. The bridge entry heightens the impact of this sloping landscape. The surrounding landscape (trees and sloping landscape) help in making the integration between the building and the site.
