Chris Cobb admitted that the biggest challenge of this project is also one of the greatest assets, a beautiful 150-year old oak tree that stood directly in the middle of the build-able property. Instead of cutting down, the house was built in a strong relationship with trees, protect homeowners without making them strangers in their neighborhood.

The solution is to create a multi-storey volume has strained the dynamic interaction of different heights involved and interact with trees, and slipping under the canopy which is defined by its outreaching branches. The house was dressed in weathering Brazilian Redwood siding and corrugated steel, which adds scale, texture, and the unification of the house with views of the surrounding area, while at the same time soften the geometry, sharp crisp structure. Wood cladding extends to the inside of the house, which is also defined by a dark brown bamboo floors, clean white walls, carefully custom made cabinets, and clean detail.
