The main level boasts concrete masonry with a six-inch stone veneer, while the upper-level features wood framing adorned with cedar siding, and the foundation is constructed with cast-in-place concrete. The floor system incorporates engineered lumber, utilizing steel framing members to craft various cantilevered sections of the building. Structural steel is extensively employed throughout the residence, allowing for expansive spans and dramatic cantilevers, such as the living room hovering above the terrace at the pool level and the master bedroom, imparting a floating effect. The design of these cantilevered levels necessitated a thorough structural vibration analysis to ensure the building’s optimal performance.
