The design strips and rebuilds a 1950s house. The courtyard footprint is expanded to become an H, and the vertical massing is reoriented to follow the topography of the hill. The exterior is clad in zinc and horizontal wood siding. The roof folds over, turning into a wall that protects the interior.
Lower walls bound the H to create outdoor courts. The interior is refurbished in a palette of simple materials, including concrete, drywall, wood, and glass. A quiet world of spaces and courts forms a peaceful setting: house intertwined with garden, flowing in and out of the transparent walls.
