Glass Draws Connection Between the Front Yard and Courtyard
Designers wanted everything in this modern home to be connected, so they used glass throughout the design to create this synergy, drawing a line of sight from the front yard, into the home's interior and into the courtyard space.
Building Materials Show Home's Public and Private Spaces
From the outside, designers wanted to delineate the public space from the private ones, so they used glass to allow transparency through the public spaces and a wood exterior to keep the private spaces private.
The architects took a staged approach to the home's design. The front living room is a one story, gabled space, while the rear space is a two story space that houses the bedrooms. Connecting the two are a screened porch and other secondary spaces.
Homeowners wanted a modern redesign to their home's exterior, so designers kept the long front porch that meets the neighbors, but punctuated it with modern, vertical windows that penetrate the painted brick section of the home's front facade. Then, they added cedar siding to warm up the exterior space. Finally, a navy blue door adds a splash of color to the design of the home's front elevation.
Home's Modern Design Elegantly Combines the Natural and the Manmade
Designers wanted to incorporate the site's dynamic landscape into the design of this home, so they created a meaningfully framed procession through the property with nuanced natural lighting throughout, creating a transitional space between the manmade and nature.
