The residence pays homage to its southern roots by creating deep recessed front. And rear porches with a cantilevered upper story. An open central volume provides abundant natural daylight to the lower story. while a steel staircase twists upwards. unifying all of the spaces of the house together.
Warm cypress siding roots the residence into the landscape and weathered steel panels protect the private upper story.
A second floor level of private bedrooms is stacked on an open lower level of living areas. The second floor “bar” is split, pushing the children’s bedrooms north and a master suite south.
