Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Architecture: 4 Spectacular Homes That Push The Boundaries20 November 2014

The interior structure shows a similar no-frills practicality. Basic steel structural frames are designed to resist both horizontal and vertical loads and shape the truss design. The uninsulated shell is clad in a corduroy of boarding boards set on the diagonal, bracing the studs against shear and racking.Looking toward the living room from the loft, one senses only the ground far below — not the sea, as one might expect. This makes for a richly varied interior experience in just 960 total square feet.Gratuitous, perhaps, but the design — which marries safety, structural expression and experience — is admirable. The sum total is a building that defers to its boundary condition and celebrates it by contrasting its features. Perching the home on the edge of the cliff has created a depth of experience and a heightened appreciation for the elements that make up the building’s environment. As this was achieved within the boundaries of myriad code constraints, it’s all the more admirable.Tour a home in California with spectacular views

Almost Japanese simplicity, mixed with golden wood panels, which makes the high ceiling feel closer to you

Nærmest japansk enkelhed sat sammen med gyldne træpaneler, der får den store lofthøjde til at synes tættere på.
