The design of this home started from the inside and worked outwards. We wanted the main living areas to be closely connected to each other to create an intimacy that would allow family members and guests to be able to converse easily. From the kitchen clear connections can be made to dining and living areas and lend to the home’s relaxed informality. Rooms stair step across the front of the property to provide a variety of views from the glass lined exterior. Each room seems to reach out and embrace the park-like landscape. Tall volumes add to the feeling of expansiveness and reinforce the connection to the outdoors. Waxed oak ceilings evoke warmth and sense of intimacy.
