If the ground floor free area constitutes an open but intimate area (closed from the street and surrounding views), the terrace in the upper floor creates a relation between the house and the landscape.

The home is quietly set on the landscape as it reaches out toward both the hills and horizon.
The home connects to the rural surroundings, reflecting the colors and textures of the scenery where horses graze and olive groves grow.

“I wanted to plant a green roof for its thermal mass, but I wanted it to be as natural as possible,” Liang says.

The building retains its original footprint; this was an important detail for the homeowners who wanted to be as environmentally-friendly as possible. “The biggest element I work with is to use the existing structure when I remodel,” says Juilland.
The facade has rustic overtones thanks to white-washed tongue-and-groove pine and Dryvit stucco with a limestone finish.
Most impressive of all, a solar array on the roof empowers the residents to produce more energy than they consume on-site.
On a five-acre property outside Taos, New Mexico, designer Molly Bell worked closely with her father, builder Ed Bell, to create a new residence for owner Lois Rodin. “Lois requested that it appear as a grouping of individual masses, so that it read more like a cluster than a solitary shape,” Molly says. “I hope it shows that it’s OK to do something modern in such a traditional environment, and not to be afraid of it.”

The house clearly displays its Sea Ranch–style touches.

The VitraHaus was designed by Basel-based firm Herzog & de Meuron and completed in 2010. The building is made of poured-in-place concrete, with the exterior covered in dark plaster and local fir.
The exterior, which was taken down to the studs and rebuilt, pairs the original concrete block with reclaimed hemlock, which clads two sides of the upstairs addition.
On the opposite side of the abstract front elevation, the home opens up and presents an entirely different viewing experience. “Like a flower leaning [towards the] sunlight, the architectural volumes pull and open up towards the views of the lake,” says Miller. A stacked timber retaining wall serves both structural and aesthetic functions; in addition to holding back the earth the home has been buried into, it visually defines the its perimeter.
The structure is sited on a slope that dips to the east, allowing for a generous basement that Ian uses for his business, Treebird Construction.
The hardscaping helps keep water use to a minimum. The Lais used gravel—accented by drought-tolerant bamboo—to create their side yard.
The black finish on the exterior facades is a modern interpretation of Corey, the artisan stucco used in traditional Mexican Cities.
