In deference to it’s spectacular, steep Coastal site, this home is creatively wrapped around an exposed bedrock bluff. Lower floors reduce in size to mirror the natural rock topography. The attenuated plans maximize light, views between the ocean and the forested coastal mountains, while communing with the coastal landscape. The residence connects to a garage by way of a glass bridge, which bypasses a large granite rock formation near the entry. Principal roofs slope inwards to collect water for use in irrigation. This Residence is primarily clad in copper embracing the natural patina process.
