With an interest in the continuity of landscape and sequential movement through space, this 6,600 square foot house manipu-lates typical paths of domestic movement to integrate the interi-or and exterior of the house.
Sinuous surfaces delineate volumes that are differentiated by slicing surfaces and materials, with spatial intersections that break down edges between inside and outside, engaging the land with the internal logics of the house. Te major shifs in geometry relate to the panoramic views, with
a narrative sequence that echoes the shoreline beyond. A fluid hallway serves as the nexus of the house, while the expansive living areas opens up entirely to the exterior, so that the house is connected to the exterior both in its narrative sequence and its physical presence.
