Following on a creative expression of “village” this concept called “B” takes maximum advantage of the dramatic views to the East, South and West. Similar to plan A the gravel courtyard separates the car experience from the home experience. Two separate entrances to the home are indicated by the stone path walkways. The garage and studio building is designed to separate our professional work from our private living space. The main house with its adjacent outdoor room is angled to take advantage of the dramatic Western views over the treetops. The pool environment including a small pool house is set lower into the hill and oriented to maximize the Southern exposure for light and warmth.
For the same reasons we rejected plan A, we felt that the garage and studio space was too far from the main house to be practical.
