The Vision
THE RESIDENCE

A VISION OF THE OWNERS,
INTERPRETED BY THE ARCHITECT,
CONCEPTUALIZED BY THE CONTRACTOR
AND TRANSLATED BY THE BUILDER

Danny and Laura had a vision for a home that had been inspired by curvilinear forms, such as the bent roofs they had seen in Asian monasteries, and other nontraditional ideas for log homes.

"A great home is more than walls and a roof. It's a finely-tuned reflection of the character and vision of the owners."
Murray Arnott

The owners envisioned a multilevel home with different floors tucked into each of the hillside coves of a rocky bluff on the secluded 2.5 acres they had selected.

At all costs, they wanted to avoid "squareness."



The family wanted ample windows to capitalize on the home's spectacular views

There were numerous concepts including:

  • fewer walls to maximize the flow of interior spaces;
  • creating a number of areas where their family could gather; and
  • enabling each member to have their own space.
