Located on a suburban site surrounded by large Tudor and neo-Georgian style homes, this 7,000 SF house is designed to both complement its neighbors and fulfill the owner’s desire for a contemporary, light filled, living environment. The exterior of the house facing the street is of traditional design with peaked roofs, multi-paned windows, and shutters; the exterior of the house away from the street is of contemporary design with alternating flat and shed roofs, and generous areas of glass. White painted brick walls, slate roofs and common proportions unify the exterior forms. The house encloses three sides of an outdoor garden with all major living spaces oriented and accessible to the exterior.
