The house is defined by 13'-0' stacked lime stone walls that alternately create a series of enclosed and open spaces with floating roofs above and thick masses below. The house is laid out so that one is weaving back and forth between carved mass and open space as this becomes a central feature of the layout and how the landscape is opened and closed as needed to the occupants. A rhythm is created that constantly fluctuates and blurs the distinction between what is considered inside and what is outside as the materials are monolithic and reduced to a few elements so that the emphasis remains on the desert beyond and the nuances of light and shade that play across the walls and spaces.
The dining room to the left of the entry hall, occupies an outdoor space captured between two of the weaving stone walls, and enclosed on either end by glass walls, thus giving the impression of being an outdoor space, even though fully enclosed. Beyond the dining room past 4 pivoting oak doors is the mass of the kitchen and mud room area contained within a long low mass that turns to form part of the secondary bedroom wings and recreation room. To the right of the main entry hall is the main living room which opens to the north and the entry courtyard, with glimpses of the pool and guest suite beyond. At the rear of the living room a pair of large sliding glass doors opens out to a covered terrace that faces the mountain view and desert beyond. Beyond the living room an open stone fire screens access to the master bedroom, yoga room and family room. The rooms' plaster ceilings are embedded with radiant cooling micro-capillary tubes creating a quiet bio-climatic conditioning system.
