This large custom home is comfortably situated on the view-ward side of a knoll just east of downtown Anchorage. The spectacular views extend from Anchorage and the Cook Inlet to as far north as glacier capped Mt. McKinley. Winter nights are lit up by both Anchorage and a seemingly endless star filled sky. The design captures all of these views from a warm interior. The house is spacious and comfortable with several smaller spaces designed as cozy retreats. The house is designed as an extension of the surrounding landscape; materials, views, and artistic features are skillfully distributed throughout the house and landscape uniting them into a connected whole.
