The site is fifteen sections of land of lush fields with a gorge going through. The house connects the gorge, spreading over east to west.
The house is a consistent 22′ wide two-story bar. A stair paves the way to the passage court. The living zones are the upper level and have ceaseless glass dividers which look north to the slope. The rooms underneath have persistent glass dividers, which look south to the theater in the scene.
From above and underneath two inverse encounters of the site are focussed, one wide and far reaching, the other characterized and shut.
Along the upper extension are two open courts, one for the section, the other interfacing the principle house to the pool and visitor house. A deck connections these courts on the north, and join with ways that lead into the scene with strolls up the slope.
Dividers and rooftop are clad in corten steel plate; saw from over, the corroded bar connects the brilliant grass inclines. A blue pool branches off the bar and tasks from the hill.
