Rigorous parameters dictate the design of this weekend residence, an architecturally distinguished one-level house for a multi-generational family.  As a counterpoint to the owners’ high-rise lifestyle, the home accommodates an abundance of family and guests and offers immediate access to the land. It is also serene, comfortable and secluded. The owners can re-energize from city life, enjoy intimate landscape views from every room and roam the grounds.Save this picture!© Steve Hall/Hedrich BlessingRecommended ProductsWindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineDoorsGorter HatchesRoof Hatch – RHT AluminiumLightsVibiaCeiling Lights – BIGThe structure is a simple configuration of three contiguous pavilions of varying heights, each housing different functions.  But all offer light-filled living spaces with significant volume to heighten the airy nature of the home. The design reflects the family’s desire to provide an epicenter for action; access the outdoors from multiple spaces; provide room for family interactions at the pool, play areas and central fireplace; have private spaces for intimate activities such as reading; and embrace sustainable initiatives.To these ends, the design features: A 6500 sq. ft. floor plan that is precisely sited to maximize daylight, sightlines and ventilation and allows visual and physical access to the rolling acres.

Save this picture!© Steve Hall/Hedrich Blessing A unique element of the home is the front door, a 10’ square pivoting panel painted vermillion that is elegant, inviting and expansive.  It is devised to be impressive; reflective of the project’s substance and style; and add color and character to the facade.  It accomplishes these goals in the following way:Save this picture!© Steve Hall/Hedrich Blessing Its dramatic scale signals the home’s entry and visually bridges an architectural divide between the public voluminous living space and the private master suite of the house. Save this picture!© Steve Hall/Hedrich Blessing The panel pivots effortlessly, providing varying degrees of transparency, security and exposure of, and to, the residence.  Save this picture!© Steve Hall/Hedrich Blessing When fully opened at 90 degrees, it reveals the voluminous foyer to the world outside, totally transforming the nature of the space. It also provides ventilation and a direct passage to the pool environs, a covered outdoor eating area and the private grounds beyond. Save this picture!© Steve Hall/Hedrich Blessing Its character and presence is heightened by its high-gloss paint and slender, sculptural stainless steel pull. Save this picture!Plan In context, the thoughtfully rendered and subtly articulated portal and vermillion panel represents daring artistry and offer a stunning and vibrant counterpoint to the residence’s sedate, understated, elegant materials palette.
