This new home is located in an inner city neighborhood with mostly ranch style homes. It will be replacing a ranch that was far to awkward to renovate and sat on the lot in a way that restricted the use of the back yard. The new design moves the house forward while still taking advantage of the views of the large, wooded front yard and saving all established trees. The lower level will be used as meditation studio and office with a generous garage. The upper level has a generous open plan with all public spaces  sharing one open room. The dining area has a large screen porch adjacent to it that links to terraces that wrap around from the front to the rear of the home. A seamless connection from interior to exterior with ample out door space was a primary request of the client. Buddhist style rain chains reflect the client’s appreciation for Asian Culture and meditation techniques while creating a far more interesting downspout to carry rain from the roof to cisterns or landscape features. The south facing kitchen has a higher ceiling with remote operated windows for daylighting and ventilation. This space is also located over the basement stair drawing cool air from the north facing basement doors up to the kitchen as the hot air rises to the upper windows.
