Sited on a wooded slope, this new single family residence is organized around a double height loft space, with views to both the front and back landscapes. A bridge connects the private areas on either side of the living area, and an open stair links the three levels. Natural daylight is maximized throughout, and a carefully detailed thermal envelope ensures an energy efficient home. Vastu principles, in keeping with the owner’s spiritual practice, were used to further inform the design.
