Concrete steps take you up to a concrete deck that acts as a ground floor for the house.

The transparent material of the roof overhang is unknown.

A pool is set into this concrete deck, creating a true focal point in the dry mountainous setting.

Under the overhanging roof, every room is a boxy modular series of contained spaces, whether indoors or out.

The living room can be completely open air, with sliding glazing that opens fully.

Here the living room is seen above the outdoor dining pavilion.

Viewed from anywhere, each room or outdoor space has its own little “box” to itself, reminiscent of Montreal’s Habitat 67 apartment complex.

An odd and memorable place.
