The house recalls the work of early modernist
  architects of the previous centuries while discreetly
  incorporating current technology. Originally planned by
  a cartographer, the interiors were redirected to take
  advantage of the expansive vistas through custom
  steel framed windows. Crisp detailing of texture-rich
  materials created a progression of intimate spaces
   surrounding a loft-like living area. Unique walnut
  columns, steel and morado stair and custom cabinetry
  reflect a successful collaboration between the
  architects, clients and contractor, utilizing the
  exceptional talents of the local tradesmen.
