2012 Builder’s Choice Award

For this modern residence, the elements of light, transparency, and continuous spatial flow were vital.  Privacy was also a concern since the residence is located in a tight urban location.

The solution was to create open and fluid interior spaces both horizontally and vertically, and then to wrap it all in white masonry. This white veil is then scored with window bands that bring in abundant natural light, while their strategic locations provide privacy and eliminate the need for window treatments.

The light-filled, modern white interior is strengthened by the use of reflective white surfaces and the use of glass railings.  The main central stair is clad in both clear and opaque glass to further maintain privacy while bringing in natural light.

The flowing and light filled interiors are carried to the two surrounding exterior landscapes, blurring the boundaries creating an urban retreat.
