‘z house’ by mut architecture
an outcropping of rock creates the setting of the ‘z house’ by mut architecture in brentwood, california.
protruding from the hillside the house is supported by the hill as it has no pillars or false walls.
owners and guests enter the house through the kitchen, where the countertop is at the same
height as the playground.
exterior stairs are in embedded in the rocks, in the facade of the house. the stairs lead to the pool,
to the tennis court, to a grass roof deck sitting above the gym – a roof deck that offers an elevated
view of the city while cooling the space of the gym below.
