516 Euclid Street Residence | HonorLouis Cherry Architecture

The design for a new modern home was based on creating compatibility with the historic homes in terms of scale, materials, shape and composition. The home is inspired by craftsman architecture that values expression of local materials, exposed structural details, and simplicity of form.

The owner is a chef by avocation and this house, located on a previously vacant lot in an older downtown neighborhood, centers around cooking and entertaining. A light filled, double height space in the middle connects the kitchen to the rest of the house. At the rear, the house opens up for entertaining via large operable glazing and focuses on views of a 100 year old oak tree.

Hurt-Manzi Residence | HonorLouis Cherry Architecture

The owner is an artist and one of the primary programmatic elements is the construction of a connected art studio and exhibition gallery. The planning concept is the use of a central courtyard for organizing the plan. The double height studio and open living/dining/kitchen space are opposite each other and connected by gallery space.

This painter/teacher couple wanted to improve the appearance, functionality and energy efficiency of their small historic home and add a modern studio to serve as study, media room, observatory, art gallery, and guest suite. The sculptural two-story space is east of the site allowing south facing windows and the back corner is truncated for clear views of the back yard from the kitchen window.

The clients desire to grow old in a warm, modern, comfortable, and healthy home that compliments their lifestyle and the site. The shed roof, precast concrete walls, corrugated metal siding, and reclaimed lumber interiors reinforce the rustic simplicity of the farm while higher tech systems including a photovoltaic array and reclaimed water flushed toilets assure they will enjoy their home while not paying utility bills.

Protzman Residence | MeritBuildSense Architecture

The rapidly growing family desired to live a modern lifestyle while respecting the history of an 1870’s farmhouse. To support the immediate family and serve as the gathering place to a large extended family, the home was gracefully redefined to open to the existing pond, cottage, and pool areas. Numerous gathering areas reinforce the connection from interior to exterior.
