We found the house in terrible shape, but still strong in concept 

Built upon the steel frame of the previous home and a love of mid-century modern art and architecture, the Chiles Residence provides both open perches and quiet retreats on its wooded hill site. Using rusted steel panels and white painted steel beams, along with wood, aluminum, and glass, the house frames both art and views of the landscape. The roof garden combines elements that serve, both in form and reason, to counter the clearly defined steel structure and at the same time giving feelings of height and expansion.
