Three shingle clad volumes spring triumphantly from the earth which are delicately connected by bridging elements allowing for passage between. These masses grow and multiply volumetrically creating a fragmented facade as they ascend reaching for a sunset view over the marsh. Shed roofs playfully dance above the careful composition of spaces opening towards the winding river and directing views through generous glazing at an everchanging natural landscape.

Dancing among the Live Oaks this generational retreat provides the perfect perch to watch wildlife of the lowcountry. Stained cedar siding allows the massing of the home to be one with the landscape while generous glazing diminishes the boundaries between the two. An imposing concrete tower, the centerpiece of the project, stands tall while the home radiates around it providing a man-made strength and gravitas in an otherwise natural and playful composition.
