Featured Project Description:

A new construction, on a stream and within a flood plain. The more challenging sites are opportunities for the most creative solutions. The home is elevated above the base flood elevations and cantilevers in every direction. Below the home sits a large covered patio, above lies a roof deck. They both open up to the stream while the vertical circulation connecting it all together is expressed in the architecture through the full height glazing.

Featured Project Completion Date:

Role in Featured Project: 

Design Architect / Project Architect / Interior Design

 

Featured Project Description:

The owners’ love of cantilevers, angles and levels are explored in architecture through the design’s organization of uses. The design divides the home into two separate geometries which intersect
at an angle, cantilever over one another, and sit at different levels. The uses are organized by what may loosely be described as living and sleeping quarters. These two geometries intersect at the fireplace which cantilevers off the angled sleeping quarters to finish parallel to the living quarters.
