“If I were the young me, I would probably have said, ‘Oh, I want to be an architect,’ because of this project. It’s the composition, the organization, the interior and exterior materials, the long, thin bricks, the skylight, the airiness. There’s a little bit of surprise and a little bit of mystery.”

This home’s carefully composed facade serves as a quiet, durable backdrop to verdant shade trees and a lush lawn. Inside, a thin floating wood ceiling defines a kitchen space where clerestory windows invite views of the canopy and sky; a translucent glass bar separates the kitchen from the home office, which is afforded views of the majestic oak court, playroom, and adjacent living room. A glassy family room overlooking the street is accessed via a floating steel-and-wood stair and is separated by a chalkboard-clad sliding wall from the hallway leading to the bedrooms and guest suite with private terrace. The backyard is defined by a fireplace, rain garden, and pavilion that converts to a fully screened porch via concealed retractable shades.
