In homage to the traditions of Richard Neutra and Gregory Ain who built extensively in the area, the form of the 2,600-square-foot house, which includes an outdoor pool, emerged from the concept of building incrementally upward in steps along the slope.
"My client’s highest priority was building a pool," says Hannah. "The property had 2 flat acres—rare in this neighborhood—which was ideal for a pool. We were able to do a very simple and modern granite pool with a beautiful contrast of concrete and decking... and still have room in the back yard for a giant vegetable garden."
The excavated material has been used to shape the property's exterior features.
The master bedroom terrace includes an outdoor shower to the north and a koi pond to the south.

On the western side of the home, the brick addition becomes sinuous to carve out leisure spaces in a new private courtyard, which is entirely enclosed by a white brick boundary wall. Large openings to the interior ensure seamless indoor/outdoor flow for the homeowners.
The home is organized around a series of four outdoor courtyards.

Buffalo Construction and engineering firm HFC Group worked with Rich to build the 3,000-square-foot home. The exterior is clad in western red cedar and the roofs are black factory-painted galvanized corrugated steel.
