Agate Point Residence
On a wooded lot near Agate Point, this modern home evokes the lofty feel of living amongst adjacent trees and wildlife in a rural skyscraper. The exterior includes reflective metal siding, curtain wall glass, and a decorative concrete block base. A single shed roof caps the 3 story volume while deep overhangs control light and shade. The exposed steel structure and unobstructed glass walls aid in 180-degree views from nearly every room. The interior plan is a simple square with spaces planned around a semi-transparent central stair core. Bamboo floors and Maple built-ins provide a warm contrast to the elegantly detailed but clearly expressed steel frame.
