Three Rivers, California / Completed 2007

The Three Rivers itHouse is an 1,200 sq ft second home for two Los Angeles based visual artists that functions as a retreat from their hectic urban lifestyle. After camping for their first two years on the pristine 7-acre site, the clients requested a house that would serve as the thinnest barrier to the outdoors while still maintaining basic indoor comforts. A second goal for the site, nestled between moss covered boulders and tall oak trees, was to create a house that would minimally disrupt the scenic landscape by creating a modest building footprint. Through a series of interconnected patios and interior living spaces, Three Rivers itHouse functions as a highly tuned instrument for enhancing one’s visual and physical relationship to nature.   (Taalman Koch Architecture)
