Inverness Residence comes from Studios Architecture and has a striking, unusual design. Located 400 feet away from Tomales Bay on California’s Point Reyes National Seashore, this home is very well integrated in its environment, characterized by woodlands and dairy farms. Here is more information on this stunning project from the architects: “The wooded site and its neighboring historic rural buildings inspired STUDIOS’ design concept for this house of contrasts, which faces the down-slope view of the Bay. The residence appears as a wood cabin to its immediate neighbors, and as a glass and steel tree house on stilts. Wooden decks and an enclosed glass dining area thrust out from the base shed and appear to float amongst the trees. Strong, earthy materials were selected to stand up to the harsh coastal elements and to respond to the dynamics of the steep site. Concrete walls inside and out anchor the building. An eroded wooden shell encloses the space and positions the open, glazed steel skeleton. An ensemble of garden walls, decks, the garage and gate house engage the site, forming an outdoor compound.” How do you appreciate this architecture approach?
