The asymmetry of the site draws from its immediate context where each building highlights view corridors to showcase the natural beauty of the Kern River basin. A simple material palette using steel and naturally stained local Yellow Cedar, blends with the surrounding high-desert brush environment. Left in their natural state, the materials are intended to age and soften.
