Oakpass Residence by Heusch Architecture:

“10 surprisingly narrow columns raise the home, which resembles a sleek modernist box wrapped in floor to ceiling glass, 12 feet above the ground.

The house is an example of an innovative solution to circumvent the 15 foot setback requirement for hillside residences. By elevating the structure the need for a tall retaining wall, 15 feet away from the structure was eliminated. Furthermore the intention was to minimize the impact on the beautiful natural site heavily wooded with oak trees.

This resulted in more light for the interior spaces, views from every room, and more privacy. Also it created an interesting space underneath the house, part carport, part Zen garden. The pool is also elevated on 3 columns and the heavy exterior west facing concrete wall acts as a passive solar heat storage element.

The 10 feet high interior walls are separated by the ceiling and floor by recessed shadow lines. The interior and exterior spaces blend seamlessly into each other due to the use of frameless floor to ceiling glass and a continuity of materials from the inside to the outside.

The choice of the natural materials such as Brazilian walnut floors inside and out, Portuguese limestone and Spanish marble define the interior spaces. The restrictive palette throughout the house and the custom designed furniture and cabinets characterize the minimalist environment.”
