Design Approach: The steep uphill nature of the lot plus the design transitions from a very entrenched and grounded design on south elevation to a floating north elevation gives the building the illusion of launching itself into the updrafts of the hillside. Its form and function result from the owner's desire to infuse a level of organic integrity into the property.
