House in the Springs


The House in the Springs is located in an area that is well known to artists for its unique quality of light. The project was developed from a geometry that stretched a simple box along its diagonal axis to make a parallelogram. As a result, the house seems to pull the landscape into its interior space, making the occupants feel as though they were part of the landscape.

The structure of the house is held up by three plywood bents, allowing the owners to have great flexibility in the placement of interior walls. Different ceiling heights create the opportunity for a ramp between the guest spaces and the master bedroom.

The House in the Springs is featured in the publication New American Houses 2 by Matteo Vercelloni and Silvio San Pedro.
