This house, for a family of 5, was designed to meet the clients goals of a house that straddles the worlds of both traditional and modern design in terms of both style as well as separation of living spaces.
Each of the public spaces are well defined as their own “room” while avoiding the sense of being too isolated or “chopped up” as is the case in some older homes. Also of importance was having the house straddle the typical traditional single family home type with the more urban town house type. While this house is detached, and has front and rear yards, it is also influenced by older types of homes with carriage houses in front and more urban massing and articulation.
