Build on a gently sloping hillside, the residence appears to rise organically from the earth.

The Bings happened to have a 20-acre parcel of land that they were willing to sell. They’d intended building there themselves but decided it wasn’t suitable for a year-round residence as it had limited inaccessibility in the winter.
