Client Brief: Active lifestyle empty nester couple of two boys desired a manageable yet elegant home rich with outdoor living opportunity and space for entertaining.
Unique Features & Challenges: Beautiful Oak trees provided both a challenge as well as an organizing element for this empty-nester residence. The resultant design responds with a pair of courtyards. The first features a shady respite beneath sprawling tree canopy while the other offers outdoor living and pool amenities. The house articulates around existing features of the site to create broken masses that reduce scale. Clean, unbroken horizontal lines ground the house and further lighten the residence.
