The Mountain Valley expands on the ‘Case Study’ series of the 1950’s. A difficult site possesses challenges in its drainage, topography and small footprint. The solution is essentially a detailed box where the details become the architecture. The client, an art collector, requested a plan that will allow his collection to be housed. The exterior is composed of custom zinc panels, sand-blasted formed concrete, aluminum window/door glazing system and tempered glass railings.
