An unparalleled view west, over the Bright Leaf preserve and up the Colorado River to the 360 Bridge, and the desire to live casually amidst a collection of mature live oak trees combined to make a powerful circumstance for this family. The house emphasizes view and a dynamic spatial sequence while at the same time creating an abstract backdrop for the serendipity light, circumstance and view.

Still unaware of the expansive panorama to come, views are revealed slowly -- with carefully framed vistas inviting expectations of what is to come, and the pursuit of which leading to new discoveries.
