Woodland Modern

New Construction

Placed within a tree-layered ravine, this home is situated between a densely wooded slope with an intermittent stream that gracefully wraps the property. Using timeless principles of modern architecture, a two-story modern form complements the serenity of the home’s setting. Setbacks and roof overhangs were used horizontality in the massing to bring down the overall scale of the structure and keep the home from dominating its context. Inside, spaces traditionally organized as separate rooms are joined together to create a light and open informal floor plan.
