Architecture is a structured relationship of physical elements in which use, experience and memory are integral to its sense of shelter. Beginning with the drawn and built conceptions of the House at Yellow Sulfur Springs, structural fragments of the project included cast concrete studies, a desired relationship between surface, physical structure and light, an indirect path of entry and pre-existing qualities of the site. These fragments coalesced as a house with varying degrees of enclosure, a structure defined by material distinctions and assembly details, and a sensual path between inside and outside.

Throughout the project, memory of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, thoughts about the nature of shelter and the ratifying logic of geometry served as additional guides.
