Setting, Building Massing and Scale

The dominance of nature over the built
environment is one of the most important traits
of rural character. The home should be oriented
and designed in response to the individual
characteristics of the site and context.
Integration with the topography, trees,
vegetation and other natural features of the land
are of the utmost importance.
The massing of the home should be organized
as a whole and should not appear as a mixture
