Entry Description

Employing concepts of proportion, scale and light, this 8,700SF home responds to a dramatic cliffside setting and the need to house nearly 60 curated artworks. A new entry sequence establishes transparency and opens up volumes, while public and private areas are bridged by a floating interior stairway with a translucent steel landing. A consistent, muted interior palette reflects natural surroundings and provides a strong continuity of theme and vocabulary, but with a change in materials. Painted walls and ceilings allow specifically placed artworks to stand out in a gallery-like setting.
