The indoor-outdoor theme carries through a number of key elements of the house. The house is anchored to its site by two soaring walls of board-formed concrete that start in the basement and carry through to the roof, tying together interior and exterior spaces.
Water travels a concrete course from the entry court, around one side of the house, and to the swimming pool on the waterfront. The pool stretches from outside to inside, slipping under a glass overhead door. Cedar siding boards that cover exterior walls turn corners, slide past windows, and continue on interior walls.
