The spatial experience unfolds as one descends from the entry ramp down into the home, here the view of the street and its noise are diminished and the quite realm of the house pervades.

The program is organized vertically with the public living, dining, kitchen, and the main art gallery spaces on the lower level and the private children’s and parent’s rooms on the upper level. The lower level’s open plan is designed for shifting social activities. The floor is seen as a “field” in which pool, furniture, and objects sit. Large pivoting and sliding glass doors extend the habitable space through to the outside. Horizontal circulation wraps this field and serves as path for the viewing of art displayed on the walls.

ARIAL VIEW

Natural light is brought through to the innermost part of the house and connects the upper level with the main entry and the gathering space of the kitchen. The two-story void occurs at the crossing of the upper level spaces and separates adult rooms from the children’s rooms. The exterior enclosure of translucent honed onyx binds the two programs of inside and outside, framing the view to the sky.

VIEW WEST

The notion of a courtyard house as urban model logically suggested itself as a way of editing the exterior context. The house is designed as relief from the activities of work and school. The internal environment created is a background enabling the change of environment through art, objects and activities programmed.
