Open Ended, A Conversation with Greg Warner
Capture: Tell us how you considered the environment in the design of this project.
Greg Warner: This house is unusual in that it is pushed back into the hill. We literally cut down into the earth, and had to break a few rules in the design to take advantage of the natural materials such as lava rock and the grasses. The siting of the structure and sliding screens open to the magnificent views. We chose a zinc roof for both aesthetics and its advantages to withstand environmental elements.
