Two concrete walls mark the site and define its major exterior and interior spaces.

The steep slope is subject to erosion and landslides, particularly when it becomes saturated with water. Two distinct roof shapes reflect different strategies for collecting the water. The western roof conveys rainwater far enough up site to allow it to drain naturally to the street. The eastern roof takes the form of an inverted gable that collects the water and deposits it into three above ground cisterns. The cisterns store water for flushing toilets, doing laundry and watering the gardens.

The chevron-shaped living space is open to the terrace and lawn. The two arms of the house form the edges of a lawn that extends from the living room to the edge of the bluff overlooking Lake Washington.
