FrontierGroup, This low impact design includes a very small footprint (500 s.f.) that required minimal grading, preserving most of the vegetation and hardwood tress on the site. The home lives up to its name, blending softly into the hillside by use of curves, native stone, cedar shingles, and native landscaping. Outdoor rooms were created with covered porches and a terrace area carved out of the hillside. Inside, a loft-like interior includes clean, modern lines and ample windows to make the space uncluttered and spacious.
