Using simple and appropriate materials to create a light, open, and functional plan that sets the precedent for this small infill development.

Owners wanted a four-bedroom house with large public spaces that would open onto a constrained suburban site near downtown. The existing site was long north to south and sloped down to the street on the north side. A stream bisected the site near the street, and the floodplain precluded construction on the front half of the property. A dramatic slope at the rear prevented locating the house far back on the property. The response to these constraints was a compact, two-story “L” that creates an outdoor space between the house and hillside.

This house is in a gated community that requires every home to be designed by an architect. A heavy timber ridge beam runs 70 feet through the house to an outdoor stone fireplace. The rough stone and the heavy timbers are contrasted by tigerwood floors, polished marble, and black and white granite surfaces.
