This new construction residence is sited in the woods of Green Lane, PA. On a steep rocky slope, the glass living area is cantilevered from the mountainside pushing the living space to mingle directly to the creek and valley below. The bedroom-level floor is set perpendicular to the living space to flow in conjunction with the profile of the mountain focusing views to the woods. This in turn creates sheltered outdoor spaces that integrate the craggy boundaries of the rock against the crisp linear profiles of the structure. The result is a home that performs like a viewing outpost, framing serene vistas and forming protected cover in an aggressive landscape that is otherwise uninhabitable.
