1. CLEAR VIEW. “I think what’s ac­tu­ally key to the suc­cess of the whole build­ing is the in­te­gra­tion with the land­scape and the land­scape de­sign,” says ar­chi­tect Jan-Heyn.

2. TER­Raced steps. The wooden decks just out­side the liv­ing area pro­vide a clear, raised space be­tween the house and the gar­den.

3. sky ge­om­e­try. The more “pub­lic” parts of the house are em­pha­sized ar­chi­tec­turally by the flip-up roofs, with cedar-clad ceil­ings that cre­ate larger vol­umes and let in ex­tra light.

4. tex­tured foyer. The stair­well leads up­stairs from the lower level, with its beau­ti­fully cast off-shut­ter con­crete (form­ing wood plank-like pat­terns).
