Schwartz and Architecture have constructed a home in California that examines the natural flow of the landscape, and as such tries to work with these forms to build an abode which does not overpower this existing scenery.

The name of the house is titled Crook | Cup | Bow | Twist, after the various deformations that can happen to lumber. After all, lumber is one of the main materials used in the building of the home, so it makes sense to name the house after a substance so prevalent in its overall design. For those living here, they will have access to not only a stunning view, but plenty of options for enjoying nature and the hillsides. Large floor to ceiling windows ensure residences are never cut off from the outside world.
