The Meadow Road project site is 7+ acres yet careful site analysis illustrated only a small portion of an old hay meadow, at the base of a steep hill, as an appropriate building site. Views were of the utmost importance and required elevating the main level to fully capture views of the mountains to the south.
A three-level form emerged with a long and tall walkout lower level parallel to and benched into the hillside and upon which the rest of the house is founded. The resulting orientation allowed for a large outdoor gathering space at the south end connected to the great room with a large pocketing sliding door. The dining room hangs over and protects the entry allowing it the same southern views. The master, one level above moves west gaining those same views while staying close to the hillside an providing a sheltered space for mechanical equipment.
