Taking cues from the neighboring classical Carolands Chateau this home for six maximizes a flat site by lifting the quiet programs off the ground to float above the activity. Service spaces are captured amongst a masonry plinth, nodding to the neighboring Chateu’s organization and rusticated base. These masses organize the primary public spaces into a double high core that connects seamlessly to the exterior. When doors retract, the wood clad volume above becomes a canopy for indoor / outdoor living. The language of the wood cladding provides a warmth to offset the masonry and modulates around the structure to control views, sunlight and privacy.
