With the house pointing southward toward Mount Sutton, the residents can embrace the gorgeous views via a covered outdoor patio.
The covered parking pad is supported by an exposed concrete volume with (unseen) built-in storage. The concrete also provides protection against water runoff from the mountain.
The home is clad in black-stained rough sawn cedar that has been sourced from Éco-Cèdre.
Buyers can also purchase models that have a green cover, which offers natural thermal and acoustic benefits.

Beautifully designed, these mobile structures are composed of high-quality materials at a more budget-friendly price, along with transportable, easy-to-assemble components.
The end elevation displays the shipping container structure and original doors.
The elegant retreat combines contemplative spaces with a sense of drama.
A break in the concrete facade reveals the front entrance, which is marked by a thin steel canopy and two chimneys.
“I wanted to plant a green roof for its thermal mass, but I wanted it to be as natural as possible,” Liang says.
On the exterior of the office, a mural called “Awakened Flow” by Seb Humphreys (AKA Order 55) echoes the tranquil energy of the home.
The roof garden, lush with edible plantings, is accessible by ladder.
Sliding glass panels allow the kitchen and dining area to seamlessly flow into the Japanese-inspired garden.
With the property bookended by two streets, the architects designed two front yards.
Spectrally selective Quantum Windows, radiant floor heating, a cold roof system that prevents ice dams, and closed cell foam insulation to prevent heat loss are some of the key sustainable features incorporated into the camp’s energy-efficient buildings.
The heart of the camp is the main residence, the Lake House, which has a stacked "cordwood wall" made from Douglas firs found on-site.
"In the western facade of the building the individual characters of the different units are most obvious, while in the eastern facade (seen here) their coherence and the cabin as a whole is more prominent," write the architects.
The green-roofed studio was reinforced to support the weight of wet soils.

Japanese architect Takashi Kobayashi of the Tree House People has been declared a “tree house master” by Design Made in Japan. Seamlessly integrating nature and design, this tiny tree house is certainly not just for children.
The Shayan House takes full advantage of its canyon site.
“Often when we talk about sustainability we focus on the gadgetry, what makes things feasible off grid,” Moffitt says. “But to me there are more interesting things in passive design that rely on the available sun and wind.” An eight-panel solar array does chip in significantly, generating all the electricity the house needs.
A 1.4-kW solar array by Sharp and propane-powered in-floor radiant heating from Radiantec obviate any need to connect to municipal power.

“There had been two or three primitive cabins on the property in the past, which resulted in a clearing that we utilized for the site,” Joseph Herrin says. “This allowed us to avoid any further tree removal for construction, and provided an opportunity to begin to restore that portion of the property with native landscaping.”
