A tribute to sensitive collaboration and execution, the homeowner’s consistent, persistent vision enabled a minimalist design highlighted in black. The simple layout flows seamlessly from one space to another, inside to outside, through the dogtrot to an open studio at the quiet end of the house. A muted color palette expands the calm interior from one end to the other, with the landscape framed by carefully-placed expanses of glass.
Simple roof massing and a central room cluster help control costs by shortening the majority of mechanical system connections. Green construction features include an R53 roof, local materials and craftspeople, whole house ventilation, and less than 1 air change per hour.
