The east edge begins to develop as an active zone which becomes the mediator between the garage / shop / storage space and the active area at the pool deck.  An infill wall system is developed that provides both privacy and connection between the two spaces.  With a need for visual flexibility at eye level from the ground floor, a desire for large amounts of natural light, and a need for free air flow through the space, a curtainwall of rough sawn cypress developed.  The curtainwall provides a 3' square grid of structural supports, for its relationship to human activities (3', 6', 9', etc.), and consists of glazed zones, and louvered zones that are either operable or fixed.
