This multigenerational estate in rural South Carolina is conceived with as much direct connection to the landscape as possible. Existing clearings within the treelines form the homes wings which consist of public living, private living, and storage. Access to the site maintains the thickness of wooded areas, to provide as much privacy as possible. The result is a series of spaces clad with glass from the bottom of the floor plate to the top of the roof line.
Inside, negative space is emphasized and storage is concentrated inside the structure, allowing for as much uninterrupted glass as possible.
Concrete anchors the building to the landscape and glass reflects the landscape back, while providing seamless views and abundant light.
