When designing the house, the architectural firm was guided by the owner to consider capturing the entire vistas into the home. That’s why the architects thought of eliminating the boundaries between indoor and outdoor elements of this abode.

Since the client loves outdoor adventures, he wanted his living space to feel like an adventure in itself. The three-story dwelling, which consists of rectilinear and intersecting volumes, expands across 15,642 square feet of area.

The exterior walls have been covered with board-marked concrete along with dark metal siding, whereas the soffits contain honey-toned wood cladding. Furthermore, a bright orange front door adds a pop of color to the given area.

On the other hand, the upper floor includes master bedroom, high-tech gym, and den. Plus, the lower level contains a game room, auto gallery, media room, and wine cellar.
