After extensive work in developing an in depth program with the clients, it was determined that the client wanted a very contemporary home with large airy spaces filled with light. Play and sports areas for the children along with entertaining areas for adults constituted the direction of the design. The site, a trapezoidal one acre parcel in a quiet neighborhood, had specimen plantings installed by the original owner in the 1920’s. The owner wished to maintain the valuable vegetation, but at the same time wanted lots of open lawn for sports.

The design took advantage of the irregular site by stepping back the mass of the building, allowing the building container to appear much smaller from the street, thus maintaining the scale of the neighborhood buildings. All of the adult living areas face the large open rear yard. The sloping roof and projecting garage/service wing create an entry motor court, connecting the street to the house.
