Designed to encompass the rugged mountains and respect the tradition of the neighborhood, the Junegrass house contains architectural details that feel distinctly modern. With the community design guidelines constraints, Messana O'Rorke designed a home that didn't compromise their meticulous approach. The residence is broken into four volumes connected by glass bridges. The house's exterior is stained cedar and stone. The interior paired with the exterior lends to an alternating rhythm of modern design, resulting in a house graced with contemporary beauty.
