Architecture: Jose Garcia Design
Built 2007; 2 bedroom, 3 bath, 4,000 square feet
This project is an exercise in simplicity. It was designed to be two boxes, clad in raw-cut poplar planks. Inside, the space is minimally divided, with wide and open views of the surroundings. Rainwater is collected in a tank disguised as a branch “nest” near the entrance, designed and built by Julia Garcia. Interior flooring is ash, partially harvested on site. It is relaxed, comfortable, and unassuming; a building designed around a specific way of life.
