Walker Workshop designed Wild Lilac House in 2016. Cradled within the foothills of the San Bernardino National Forest, California, USA, the project consists of the 3,200-sqft (297-sqm) single-family residence and the pool house of 800ft² (74m²).
The design uses a series of thickened walls which run east-west along the topography of the dramatic mountain site to establish discrete programmatic zones and protect the interiors from the sun. Each resulting zone affirms its connection to the surrounding hillside, while the thickened walls demarcate successively more private areas of the house.
