Design Challenge

Create a modest home that is capable of entertaining large groups of people while being equally adept at small family gatherings.

Accomplishments & Design Solution

“The house had to match the modest scale of Bow Mar’s more traditional, lower-slung ranch-style homes. The one-acre setting, which descends gently toward the lake about a hundred yards away, provided an ideal solution. From the street, the house looks like a modest single-story structure. Beyond the foyer, however, the house gradually steps downhill, room by room, wing by wing, so that the lake-view master suite is almost but not quite a full floor lower than the main living areas. On every side and every level, a series of decks, patios and pathways creates a free-flowing connection between covered and open-air living spaces.”
