Edge House

Edge House


Galena, MO


4,000 sf

The experience of moving from site to house is conceived as a choreography of framed views that slowly opens up to and reveals the lake beyond. The semi-transparent first floor lightly rests on a solid, monolithic plinth nestled into the hillside, reminiscent of nearby trees precariously supported by boulder outcroppings and sharp edges. It is fundamentally a place to view the lake and take in the surrounding natural beauty of the Ozarks, much like the experience of emerging from the woods onto a high bluff overlooking the natural landscape below.
