ogrydziak/prilinger architects complete the Kayak House in California 

This 3,700 sq. ft. house overlooks one of the best kayak runs in California. Geometrically, the house has a split identity. Away from the river (the private side), the house is an orthogonal L in plan, creating a cartesian courtyard with a calm, enclosed feeling. Towards the river (the public side), double height volumes push away from this cartesian frame towards site-specific views. The result is an organic, free plan which expands the house towards the exterior landscape. Major materials used are cast concrete, concrete block, structural steel framing, and metal pan decking.
