Set on a 3,750 sqft plot the 2,900 sqft home snakes around the existing trees on the site, yielding solid and void spaces in its wake. Taking advantage of the half story  grade difference the walk-out basement is well-lit and ventilated. Voids in the various levels of roofs connect the different levels and spaces in the house.
