A classically modern pavilion, this two-suite guest house sits in a park-like setting recalling Case Study homes of the mid-20th century.
It is a study in open and closed systems presenting an introverted, secured front to the street and an open, permeable face to the garden at the home’s backyard. It turns a solid face to the north where it adjoins the entry road. The house entry is signified by a small elevated porch that reveals a door marked only by a textural change in the stained beetle-kill siding. Immediately upon entry, one is presented with an all-glass wall framing the view to an intimate art-filled court.
The house is comprised of two master suites designed for two independent adults living on a single level in a barrier-free environment. The design of the fixturing, doors and thresholds allows the owners to gracefully age in place. The suites are located in independent wings of the home and saddlebag a central great room with open kitchen, dining and living in a casual setting. The great room opens to an over-sized south-facing stone patio. The patio is a transitional outdoor room between the tempered space and the garden beyond. The south facade of glass stands in stark contrast to the nearly hidden front entry.
The interior palette is a contrast of crisp lines and organic textures weaving modern spaces with timeless, patinated surfaces.
