Contemporary House with an edge

Firstly, this house is an eye-catcher at first sight. Your attention gets caught by the pure geometry elements that it showcases and the shape defined by the roofline. Also, we made a meticulous exterior material selection and distribution to match the style and define the geometry of the different components.

Main Level


The front elevation displays a see-through glass wall made of a set of windows so that you can see the whole living area from the front yard. The main entrance features a French door seamlessly embedded In the middle of that glass wall. There is not a Foyer. The doors open right into the Great Room. Once inside, you find yourself inside a tall space surrounded by windows that let all the light in.

All that light washes an open space containing the Living Room, The Dining Room, and The Kitchen. The see-through continues across the Great Room all the way back to the Covered Patio. Furthermore, we can unify the Covered Patio and the Great Room as a big Gathering space by opening the set of accordion doors we placed between those spaces. Even though that grandiose enlighted space is the leitmotiv of the Great Room, we also have the possibility of enjoying a cozy, hugging space at the Breakfast Nook we added next to the Kitchen.

The right wing of the house is dedicated to the main private area, which is the Master Suite. That Master Suite features the Bedroom, a split basin layout bathroom with a Wet Room, and also two massive Walk-in Closets for a His and Hers request. From the Master Bathroom, we have access to the Laundry Room, which also connects to the Mudroom. Last but not least, the Mudroom works as distributor space that interconnects the Garage, the Laundry, and the Great Rooms passing by the Walk-In Pantry and the Kitchen.

Upper Level

Behind the Fireplace, you will find a modern steel stair from the Great Room that leads you to The Upper Level. The see-through experience is even wider up there. Once you are there, you will find a long catwalk that takes you along the house. From there, you can enjoy the great golf course views outside, the Great Room inside, and also the woods at the back of the house. Upstairs, the right wing is also dedicated to the private spaces, the sons´ bedrooms, and bathrooms. On the opposite wing, you will find the Guests Quarters with a Bathroom and a Deck that opens to the best views of the surroundings.

Finally, we designed this house to express the modern style and personality of the owners, we both agreed that we made it. So we are proud of the result.
