Merit Award


Anchored by monumental oaks and redwoods, this modest sustainably-designed suburban home offers expansive living spaces that extend into the landscape. The existing trees inform a spatial arrangement of framed views, outdoor rooms, and screening for privacy. A metal skin and interlocking volumes obscure the demarcation of inside and outside.

The jury savored the cleanliness and clarity of the project. It is a simple response to a long and narrow site that results in a strong plan and a beautiful home.
