Sited on a high bluff with river views, this new 4,000 square foot house was designed as a series of four individual “cottages” connected by glass hyphens. Responding to the close proximity of neighboring houses, the plan was staggered in such a way to minimize the apparent mass and to create a pocket of outdoor privacy for the owners. The approach to the house focuses on a diminutive entry cottage relating to the scale of neighboring houses. Upon entry, the scale shifts and the interior spaces dramatically open up, revealing and relating to the larger panoramic river views.
