Building a modern home inside a protected eco-zone is a task that requires both sensitivity towards the natural bio-network that already exists and ingenious architectural solutions that will create a structure that will seem like a natural extension of the landscape.
An additional feature at this elegant home is the wonderful presence of clerestory windows which bring in a flood of natural light and create a cheerful atmosphere. Materials such as native cut stone copper and western red cedar succeed in giving the beautiful residence a timeless appeal despite its more modern silhouette.
The home is filled with a wide array of contrasting textures that give it a unique personality even as smart sliding partitions separate the living areas from the cleverly organized work zones.
On the outside seems like any other house in the neighborhood with its beautiful brick wall exterior and sweeping wooden deck that offers a relaxing outdoor hangout. It seems like one of those classic homes where tradition trumps modernity.
One of the hardest parts of home design is to unearth space when none exists. This often means turning to space-saving cabinets and décor that takes up little square footage as well as utilizing clever tricks that give the impression of an airy open interior.
