The project was composed of 2 bedrooms and 2,500 s.f. with one level. The client wanted a project that was visually pleasing for the visitors and users of the Club House located on an adjacent hill over looking his project, and for his residence to be focused on the Great Room. The Great Room is located on the entry door axis so when guests enter they will be drawn to the large fireplace and the 12'-0' tall glass that surrounds. With the large views there is an always-changing view throughout the day and seasons. The Great Room ceiling rises above all the other spaces and has clerestory on all sides and a massive "x" truss system that supports the roof.
The exterior look is based on the existing site of broken strata and an exposed cliff edge. The structure took on a Prairie Tuscan style with rusticated stone at the base rising literally out of the rock and capped with 3" tall broken face buff sandstone and continuing with stucco to add refinement to the exterior wall. The roof created soft base with shade and shadow over the wall with its 3'-0" overhangs and articulated rafter tails and shallow slope with mottled earth tone tiles. Patina copper eyebrows were placed at certain areas to cantilever the roof further out, create a unique roof line and to allow further natural light into the interiors.
