Part of the approval process for this small modern home included a required raised portion of the site dedicated to storm-water control and a sanitary system. To accommodate this requirement, a plinth was used raise the surface and was landscaped with a native grass.
Part of the approval process for this small modern home required that a portion of the site be raised to accommodate storm water and a sanitary system. Bates Masi + Architects used a plinth to create a raised surface and then landscaped the area with native grass.
This home's pool is designed in such a way to give the effect that the house is actually resting on top of a plinth, as the "boulders" of the pool run right up to the building. These "boulders" contain water slides that are accessible from different levels of the home.
