Taking its name from the trees that dot the property, Forty-One Oaks House is inspired by its old-growth neighbors. The structure is comprised of a series of glass and steel pavilions. Its glazed facade allows for constant views of the surrounding landscape, blurring the lines between the interior and the outdoors. Rich wood floors and concrete walls define the material palette, a combination that is both warm and modern. While most of the house is immersed in the scenery, the strongest connection to nature is in the dining area. The glass-encased room cantilevers out towards the forest enveloping inhabitants in the natural setting.
