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).
