House on the banks of American RIver overlooking the state park

The house responds to the natural context of a gently rolling and wooded slope and frames the spectacular views of the river and State park opposite. It opens up to the setting with a continuous wall of glass, protected beneath extended cantilevered overhangs. The design creates a dynamic and sculptural form floating above the bluff.

"... one of the remarkable homes of northern California."

— Channel 3 Television

"…the house explores the relationship between dwelling and context, interior and exterior spaces…it handles light and shade with extraordinary skill."

"The sequence of forms recalls Le Corbusier’s Salvation Army hostel in Paris."

—Archi Volta Magazine

"The conceptual idea is a full union with nature…a smooth transition from interior to exterior"

—Architecture and Interiors Magazine

"Integrated with nature…this is a ‘super-ecological’ project, a technological example of sustainable design."

—Taburet Magazine
