Single-Family Residence

Completed 1984


A modern, two-story, aluminum clad, single-family residence that has been the subject of numerous newspaper articles and television programs, such as HGTV’s “Extreme Homes”. The 2800 sq.ft. interior is filled with architectural details, multiple built-in storage units, architect-designed rift oak kitchen cabinets and custom furniture. Two-story volumes, curved walls, exposed steel structure, and an open plan give the home a loft-like quality. The natural light-filled structure incorporates passive solar techniques, maximum insulation, and many green materials. The additional 975 sq.ft. lower level office/studio is perfect for live / work users.
