“Hidden from view behind the buildings traditional façade, the finished extension is an elegant piece of modern contemporary glass architecture. It completely reinvents the feel and atmosphere of the previously dark and cramped servants’ quarters; all within the rich and poignant historical context of the site.”
Even though the home has several windows and glass walls, their strategic placement in the front of the house allows for the residents’ privacy. Computer-programmed window shades, a hydronic heating system, a solar-powered water heater and photovoltaic panels also make it extremely energy efficient.
Once inside, spacious interiors, seemingly endless white walls, minimalist furniture arrangements and generously-sized glass piercings set the tone for a modern-style home: “The entry defines a gallery that runs the length of the house, dividing the kitchen-dining room volume from the guest room-family room volume. The entry procession ends at the double-height master suite volume. An animated stairway overlooking the family room leads up to a catwalk between the guest rooms and a bridge to the media room”. How would you comment on the indoor-outdoor relationship of this project?
