The James River House was designed as a place for three young boys. It is a place where they can grow and learn from their surroundings – experience mud, moths, flowing water, and the changing light of the seasons; a place that would allow for many gatherings of all the people who love them.

Three volumes hover above a bluff alongside a bend in the James River in Scottsville, Virginia, arranged loosely and lightly on the land like a scattered group of stones around a campfire.

As a visitor slips between the volumes, the house opens up to light and river views and the fully enveloping woods.
