This new residence and bridge is designed in the Arts and Crafts style.  Located on a triangular site with the ravine forming the long side of the triangle, the house takes its shape and massing from the ravine.  The house has  low stature that "grows" out of the ravine slope.  Careful attention to roof shapes, wall heights, and eave heights gives the home a more organic appearance.  These lower building masses also lessen the impact of the new residence upon neighboring properties.
