pod living

north perspective
pod living plan

Three distinct pods providing flexibility for separation or an open continuity.  North facing pods with individual decks integrate indoor / outdoor living, where the roof form creates a lightness, pulling in the external environment.  The natural fall of the land and natural watercourses are redirected in-between the pods and these areas become pebbled creek beds, enhancing the site ecology in a natural way.
