This house is arranged around a pool and situated for sun exposure and views. Working within the tradition of west coast contemporary architecture, local materials are used throughout. Heavy timbers frame for the wood windows and doors. Fir ceilings and soffits create a continuous plane, blurring the line between interior and exterior. The energy usage for the home has been decreased with the use of a geothermal heating system, low-e glazing, in-floor heating and heat recovery.
