A busy home finds serenity
This home was designed to support a busy family of three young boys, but at once be reflective and peaceful. We achieved this tall order with an interconnected and efficient plan, driven by the notion of fluid circulation around form. The feature aspect is the stair core, centered in the plan as a three-story shaft of textural wood from which all spaces radiate, and terminating on the upper level as a skylit cube. A soft palette of whites mixed with timeless walnut and a touch of glam create elegance without compromising the requisite durability.
