Characterized by clean lines, sheer glass walls, and sculptural sun shades, this sharply-detailed house offers an intriguing counterpoint to the tropical ambiance of its forest-like setting.
As the homeowner moves vertically through the home, every space is immediately accessible from the glass-enclosed stairwell. The stair and every level enjoy butt-glazed windows looking to the northeast and downtown. Sixty-foot-tall tubes protect the glazing on its western exposure, serving both as the home’s primary structural support and leading visually upward before turning 90 degrees to shield the rooftop deck atop the home. The rear façade is clad in locally-quarried roughback Leuders limestone, providing solar and privacy protection from adjacent neighbors to the south.
