1365 Yellowstone (1979)


A more contemporary example of 20th century architecture that seeks to make use of its site, this house was built in 1976 and designed by the architect/owner, Harry Gaz. The living spaces are arranged in five levels emphasizing flexibility and at the same time incorporating the surroundings into the house's interior. As the owner declares: "There is no window that is not within easy reach of a leaf."


The design anticipates modern technology as well. The slope and southern exposure of the roof allow for the eventual installation of a solar system for heater water.
