A small house on a golf course by a stream.

This house consists of three cedar boxes anchored by a long concrete wall, all separated by large glass windows that afford different vistas out into the landscape. Large glazed sliding doors that recess back into the structure allow access out to courtyards that provide sunny sheltered outdoor living areas that can be selected depending upon the sun and wind direction.
