Diverse materials and a divided floor plan mitigate the house’s scale. Earth-tone hues cloak the exterior, blending the structure into its scenic backdrop.

Bisected by a roomy dogtrot, the guesthouse (above) creates a gate-house entry to the compound.

Delicate details give this rustic lodge an elegant composure. Dynia speced mahogany boards that match the width and color palette of the rusted-steel roof’s corrugation (above left). The weathered copper shingles also blend with the mahogany and rusted-steel finishes (above).

Turning lemons into lemonade, Dynia transformed vertical reinforcements required by seismic code into an outdoor observation platform (above). The steel tower permits copious glazing on two walls. Cross-braces along the non-scenic wall keep things light while still meeting code (opposite).
