Abstract
Our built environment is frequently in opposition with nature, therefore how man reacts with his surroundings can also shape them. The residential project began with the horizontal lines of the rock formations located throughout the site, and through utilization of the characteristics of the five elements of Feng Shui, innumerous decisions were made concerning orientation, material, and sense of place; allowing one to experience a sense of change yet maintaining a balance between the inside and out. The four primary walls become the vertical elements set in opposition to the horizontal lines of the site.
