Blanketed by a folded steel roof, the single floor of spatially contiguous living spaces can be found upon a partially subterranean garage that opens to the stunning landscape. The shape and height of the roof are manipulated to respond to the programmatic requirements of the project brief, solar exposure, and both the external and internal spatial.
