Perched on a steep dune and embracing surrounding forest views, this weekend retreat is designed to serve its owners sustainably and economically into eventual retirement.
The home is composed of three interlocking volumes cantilevered from the hillside to minimize disturbance to the site. The transparent center pavilion, make the forest behind the home visible during the day and glows like a lantern after dusk. The more solid pavilions contain the guest and master suites, providing privacy from the road below while opening up to the forest behind.

The steeply sloping site required balancing the desire for sweeping views with the need for easy access. Everyday living spaces are stationed on a level between the attached garage and the less-frequently used guest rooms.
