Situated on a steep and technically challenging site, this house captures framed views to large-scale marine traffic in the outer harbour. Movement into the house is carefully choreographed to disguise the considerable elevation change from street to living space- no individual stair run is greater than 1/2 story. Similarly, a split level arrangement allows for generous spaces in the main living levels and a closer connection between upper and main floor. A suspended plunge pool at the main level is a unexpected element 40 feet in the air.
