Miyoshi Residence


A new 1,500 square foot house that perches lightly on a ridge and projects outward to command a panoramic view. An internal open stairwell with a suspended stair connects a mezzanine study, the daytime functions at mid-level, and the nighttime functions below. Three levels of inverted gable trusses diminish the apparent weight, allowing the building to appear to float.
