The Overlook House
Architect Name: Marcus Gleysteen
Architecture Firm: Gleysteen Design
The Overlook House achieves a very light environmental impact while producing visually rich and architecturally satisfying spaces. This residence is built upon an existing footprint; it replaces a structurally-compromised house that could not be renovated and re-used. Built sensibly from sustainable materials, The Overlook House embodies the best in effective building technology and energy use. This project successfully incorporates a myriad of daily-life programmatic components in a minimalist vocabulary. It accomplishes both dramatic design and environmental sensibility through attention given to the interior and exterior surfaces.
