Situated on a hilltop in Southern California, the Wild Lilac House is a modern refuge in San Bernardino National Forest. The property is comprised of a main residence and pool house. Both are formed by thickened walls running east-to-west across the terrain, shielding the home's more private areas and protecting the interior from the sun. The concrete barriers are connected by a glass facade affording views of the sunset across the valley to the west. To the east, sliding glass door expand the living space out to a central courtyard with an integrated pool and spa. Concrete steps lead up to the pool house offering an additional perch to overlook the mountainous landscape.
