A strong desire to build an inside/outside retreat in the mountains leads us to conceive this house in a semi-circular shape. The inner part of the circle becomes a yard where fire reigns. The entrance's roof is a platform to look beyond the trees... Like the stairs going down the Ganges River in Varanasi, these stairs go down to heaven in the mountain landscape, an analogy our client originally from India embraced without hesitation.
