The eccentric pivot front door invites you into this clean and warm contemporary style home. With wide overhangs and well shaded bands of glass it combines the openness of an island getaway with a “C – shaped” floor plan that gives much needed privacy on a not-very-wide lot. The ingenious design nabbed awards in the Custom Luxury and Published Designs categories at the 2013 American Residential Design Awards. All major rooms open onto the courtyard where the angular pool repeats the design motif of the angled interior stair. Designed for a young family, the home allows parents to monitor children’s outdoor play from virtually every room in the house and even from a hanging bed on the master porch. Many green features including HVAC within conditioned space were incorporated. The division between indoors and out is blurred by glass strategically placed for good sight lines but avoiding views of the grill area or neighbors. Outdoor living is just a step away, completely open to the home, but private from neighbors.
