The house provides dramatic interior and exterior quasi-public spaces for entertaining while offering a more intimately-scaled spaces for private living and personal contemplation.

These tall spaces interact with a large roof plane with a shaped underside. This roof acts to bind the house together and create diverse, deep covered exterior spaces at all levels.
