The owners wanted a strong connection between inside and out and although the street side of the house maintains a low profile, the creek side of the house has several indoor outdoor spaces, including a cantilevered dining deck supported by its own fireplace. The home also employs sustainable building strategies including super insulation, a green roof with local native plants and solar panels.
