Set into its hillside lot, this house buries the Garage into the slope and opens up the Living area to its panoramic views. Taking into account the solar orientation of the site, the roof overhangs are extended to capture out door entertainment areas while providing a nice passive solar balance between summer and winter. The main living areas of the house are stretched along an axis that points from the peak of Green Mountain to the western summer sunset. The roof slope rises from the intimacy of the Master Bedroom to the grandeur of the Living/ Dining space while mimicking the cross slope of the hillside. Utilizing steel, concrete, and weathered cedar the house has low maintenance while the ground source heat pump, super insulation, and high performance glass reduce its energy footprint.
