Balance House

The clients for Balance House wanted a home for their growing family that facilitated a relaxed rural lifestyle and one that captured the beautiful views available from the site

The house is broken into 2 linear forms that slide past each other, forming the entry courtyard and maximizing access to light and views. At the western end, the house rises out of the landscape and opens to the views through dynamic steel plate windows boxes.

The materials are robust and bold, but the detailing refined and highly considered. Vertical metal cladding, concrete, steel and glass is juxtaposed against the warmth of rammed earth walls and the softness of the landscape.
