The designers wanted to blur the lines between the outdoors and indoors. Double-channel steel columns allow light and views of the landscape to slip through the building structure. Knife plate connections—thin steel plates mortised into wooden beams or anchored in concrete—extend 6 inches above and below the tops and bottoms of the columns, giving the structure an open feel.
