This modern stone house designed as sensitively five-acre wooded lot sited. So, it not whole stoned, the timber woods used as structure and as interior design materials. The stone walls that extend through the house into the landscape is organizing the house in axis along with specimen trees.
This single family residence accommodated with swimming pool, native plant areas and walking/jogging trails. This modern house built with ecological responsibility, with using natural materials resources. Low-VOC materials, a radiant in-floor heating system operating on geothermal energy, sustainability harvested woods, and passive solar strategies, all contribute to a healthy, comfortable environment, indoor and out. Daylighting strategies and abundant glazing provide access to views, extending the landscape into the house.
The result is interesting schematic home design with great construction administration, so it nice to be viewed and look clean and structured. And the important of structured house is, it feel spacious, the house feel unify with the surrounding nature. Like we never in house, but we are in the nature. Landscape Architect: Nelson Byrd Woltz.
