During operating with the architects, the couple declared that “The American Folk Art Museum was always in the back of my mind,” says the wife. They had in mind the work devised by the duo Williams and Tsien in 2001.“
Tod and Billie’s awareness to detail and an overall understanding of space are exceptional. “I always thought that if I had the opportunity to build a house, they would be the architects I’d work with.” And so, they invented this breathtaking home.
“The plot is more of a wooded site than an ocean site,” Williams explains. “We conceived the home as its own world, more inward-looking than a typical beach house but still connected to the landscape by carefully framed views.”
The main bathroom is a dream come true for all design enthusiast. The sunshine easily warms up the compartment, and the bathtub’s produce from granite, creating a distinctive harmony with the home’s natural encircling.
Fantastic bathroom design! Invented with much love and skill.
“Early discussions with the architects focused on the family’s casual lifestyle, in particular, their penchant for summer lunches that stretch well into the afternoon, as well as the idiosyncrasies of the property”. This was perpetually an interest at the back of the architects’ intention, which guarantee the residence had a rooted association with its outdoors and made sure light was constantly welcome within.
All in all, the house include five volumes that, synchronically, create an astonishingly appealing visual display. Three of the volumes are clad in regular bands of silver-gray Valmalenco quartzite: the primary box (which includes living and dining spaces, an open kitchen, and the daughters’ bedrooms); the guest pavilion; and the garage. Then there’s the covered terrace that is used for alfresco dining and entertaining. Lastly, there’s an ethereal glass box we can see in the photo below, which contains the master suite.
