Large corner doors and windows and a wrap around deck take advantage of sound views and light.

The front of the main building is all one open living space and includes the dining room, living room and kitchen. The master suite is tucked into the back corner (on the left side of this photograph), allowing a floating tub to feel like it's in the forest.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: How to Make a Home Sit Lightly on the Land
Undulating, uneven topography is appropriate for pier foundations, which can be poured to an even height in a grid to support the building above. The pier foundation is inherently efficient, using substantially less concrete than a cast-in-place concrete wall and footing design. If you’re envisioning the classic camp in the woods with a tilting post foundation and uneven floors, think again. Modern post and pier foundations can be engineered to be every bit as stable as cast-in-place concrete foundations. It’s essential that they’re designed by a qualified professional engineer to ensure that the building loads are properly supported by the earth.

What Houzzers are commenting on:

Much of the area of side yard could be covered in these type of grasses - maybe even some of the area behind and near the large concrete slab. Larger, solid areas such as this mixed with areas of more color and mixed texture.
Tamara added this to Exterior
Corrugated finish (but would prefer just as trim), corner windows with colored trim. Like the shed roof, but not the underside of it. Like the railings.
Chuck Burke added this to Wish List
Interesting as front of lake house.

Maybe the man shed? Not two story but would keep it low slung.

Homes that "sit Lightly above the ground...good for pre-fab?
