Trouble with the Curve

This ultra-modern home is located on a cul-de-sac of a quiet established development backing up to a local Metropark. The house was designed on a large curve terminating at an outdoor covered entertaining space complete with a gas fireplace.  The large floor to ceiling curtain of glass and open floor plan with lower level walkout allows all the main living spaces to take full advantage of the views of the wooded Metropark. Large slabs of ultra-compact porcelain flooring accentuate the curve and create a unified theme to all the spaces of the open floor plan. The floating stair of wood treads glass and steel gives central access to the main living spaces. The large floating island allow for meal preparation while entertaining and the many large retracting glass doors allow for occupants to flow out into the outdoor spaces. The exterior materials were chosen for their beauty and low maintenance; ultra-compact porcelain, stone, synthetic stucco, cement siding, and t & g wood soffits. The driveway and motor court are stained concrete with the control joists cut in a square grid.

The interiors have a soft white muted pallet and a quiet ceiling utilizes small aperture square LED lighting to allow nature to play a major role in the home’s interior. The fireplace wall has a hidden door to the master suite veneered in concrete panels. The European kitchen is sleek and well light utilizing hidden appliances behind full-height rosewood veneer panels. With built-in coffee and ovens at counter height adjacent to the island.
