Intentional in its siting, this contemporary home evokes architectural elements of Prairie-style vernacular through its use of horizontal lines, hipped rooflines, windows, and deep overhangs as it nestles into its sloping landscape. Its combination of natural stone wrapping the base and white façade accented by contrasting charcoal trim and roof silhouettes is carried throughout the interior of the home as well to strengthen the seamless transition from indoor to outdoor spaces. Its series of volumes are engaging, while also providing symmetry and an intuitive interior layout where public and private spaces are separated. Double-height volume spaces, such as the main living space where distinctive clerestory windows allow natural light to flood the interior, made possible through an intentionally smaller upper-level footprint.
Designed for entertaining as well as for retreat, the home’s open concept extends its living, kitchen, bar complete with sliding glass window, and dining room out onto a fully screened porch, featuring Phantom Screens, and a landscaped outdoor patio. The home also features other amenities to support the client’s lifestyle, such as a proprietary furniture solution offering a modern take on the traditional murphy bed, lower-level exercise room, sauna, wine cellar, golf simulator, master suite, guest suite, and garage.
