A Comfortable Contemporary

A great example of how architects can give exciting form to a client's wishes. Steel, glass and wood combine in soaring combinations to frame the views of sky and ocean. Ceiling planes fly out over the decks, barely interrupted by the window glass. The super-efficient glazing system has its own system for monitoring and adjusting itself for changes in air pressure. The audio system in this house was designed and tested so that it performs “like a finely tuned instrument.”
