Nestled among a dense grove of trees, the dwelling’s unique position resonates with the inherent beauty of a pastoral landscape. Paralleling the natural topography, a large void aligns precisely with a bend in the nearby creek and frames distant views that expand the dimension of the property. Situated at the intersection of public and private levels, this portal – reminiscent of a dog-trot -- extends beyond the role of frame offering a shaded breezeway for entry, environmental response and entertaining. This strategy fosters a dialogue between two distinct volumes: one elevated within the tree foliage and one embedded in the rolling terrain.
