House for Two Artists and their Children
The design of the House for Two Artists and Their Children responds to the Owner’s desire for an open plan house with a modern relaxed aesthetic. The project includes an extensive renovation of an existing mid-twentieth century house as well as a new second floor addition over the existing carport. The new sloped roof forms provide a dynamic dovetailing of the main and upper level living spaces. The main level is an open plan with entry foyer, living room, kitchen/dining room/ outdoor deck, laundry room, powder room, and master bedroom suite. The upper level houses two bedrooms, a studio, and two bathrooms. The lower level has a sound studio, family room, guest suite, and storage/utility room. Large windows throughout the house provide dramatic views and opportunities for ample natural light. The original limestone veneer is retained.
