About MC House
Understated Elegance: The MC House
From the street, the MC House showcases minimalistic charm. It nestles deep within the lot.
Harmonizing with Nature
The design respects natural land elevations. Essentially a single deck, the house gently settles on the terrain.
Strategic Design Choices
The lower floor adapts to the land’s contours. Its elongated design shields from northern weather and embraces the sunny south.
A strategically placed kitchen forms the heart of the house. It offers panoramic views of social spaces and the outdoors.
The design fosters indoor-outdoor connections, particularly between the kitchen, rooms, and a semi-covered patio leading to water. A prop-free three-track frame ensures unobstructed flow.
