Separating from a few sections of land of cornfields, an one-quarter mile street lined with pine trees ends at a precious stone formed tract of area with amazing perspectives of the Tred Avon River. Emerging from the rock drive and fence lined stopping court, this new house is uncovered as three strong volumes, connected together with glass extensions, suspended over the scene.

The focal, 36-foot high volume is generally without fenestration, punctuated just by the recessed 10-foot high section entryway and slender sidelights.

A lattice of steel sections regulates the space. Secured porches amplify the inside spaces, giving a plenitude of open air living space with fluctuating exposures and perspectives. A screened patio gives an extra gathering to experience perspectives of the stream, sitting above a swimming pool, situated on pivot to the principle ting gathering.

The house is freshly definite and insignificantly outfitted to permit perspectives of the pleasant site to give the essential tactile experience. The house was outlined as a vehicle to encounter and appreciate the unfathomably lovely scene, known as Diamond Point, mlessly mixing the stream’s far reaching vista with the space.
