The site for this house is with­in a sub­di­vi­sion lim­it­ed to archi­tect-designed homes and reg­u­lat­ed by build­ing restric­tions con­trol­ling views, build­ing heights, and aes­thet­ic con­sid­er­a­tions. The client’s spe­cif­ic pro­gram require­ments in rela­tion to out­door areas and views gen­er­at­ed the dis­po­si­tion of the house to the site.  This house site tran­si­tions down from the street to garage and to house. The spaces between the garage, street, and house which are sit­ed to the view become entry courts. Fam­i­ly pub­lic areas in this house are on upper lev­els afford­ing expan­sive views; fam­i­ly pri­vate areas are below, with activ­i­ty areas relat­ing direct­ly to grade.
