House at Chimney Rock

The house was designed and sited to take full advantage of light and view. The entry court is defined by the three main elements of the project: a garage linked to the house by a covered walkway; a low, one-story wing containing the kitchen, dining, utility, office and entry spaces; and a two-story wing containing living and sleeping rooms. The timber-frame construction is exposed both inside and out, articulating the covered patio, walkway and garage. The two roof planes of the one-story wing are separated by continuous clerestory windows providing direct sunlight into the dark side of the house. The separated roof planes also help to reduce the ridge height and simplify its profile.

The exterior incorporates horizontal and vertical cedar siding, fir timber framing, metal roofing and glass.
