Embedded in the isolated environment of a West Virginia forest, the design for Rihadema amplifies the awareness of nature through the manipulation of key viewpoints. The site, an undeveloped section of forest with significant elevation changes, offers dramatic views to the valley and mountains west and south-east. Man-made clearings, orientation of the buildings, and the placement of glazing are used to highlight these views and guide visitors along the circulation paths to the entry and, finally, into the house. The framed views unfold as a sequence of events: the bridge connecting the garage to the main house provides a controlled view to the west, taking the visitor into the interior by the presentation of the southern view through the house. Upon entering, views to the west draw the visitor into the living space.

Support spaces are housed within the distinct central core which provides much of the structural support. This organization forces circulation to be pushed to the perimeter in an effort to maximize the visual connection with the site, enhancing the indoor / outdoor experience. Stone, wood, and CMU were selected for their regional aesthetic that blends the project into its natural environment. Wrapping of these materials emulates the natural intertwining of rocks, moss, and roots observed on site. Rihadema’s long, slender form was developed and oriented to maximize the southern exposure for passive heating, preferred views, and daylighting benefits. The faceted roof mimics the dramatic rock outcroppings while also sloping inward to hug the site and emulate the horizon line.
