To reduce scale and take advantage of day light and views, the house is divided into wings that are one-room deep. A central gallery links the wings and is lined with a thickened wall with niches for pottery display. The interior is finished in knotty white oak floors and concrete floors that contrast with rift white oak cabinets, stairs and ceilings.
Triple glazed windows, good cross ventilation, continuous roof insulation and a 10kW solar array reduce the energy use.
