Modern Cedar and Concrete Hillside Home With Cascading Roof Sections
The house emerges from the land, paralleling the slope of the butte with progressively stepping, flat, grassy rooflines. While the site inspired the residence’s composition and massing, the exposed concrete, cedar and steel materials speak to its “built” nature—original and honest, rather than imitative of the natural world. A butterfly roof caps the topmost level providing visual interest to the “cascading box” design while referencing the uplift of nearby mountain ranges.
