Faced with the challenge of designing a new home on the footprint of a partially constructed residence abandoned seven years earlier, the architects created an airy pavilion-like structure which allowed the client to take advantage of a restricted building area while capturing extraordinary views. Once inside, the sheer drama of the space becomes immediately evident—soaring ceilings, spare geometry, and impeccable proportions. Framing the panoramic view, 22’ high sliding glass doors dematerialize the walls of the living area, allowing the interior and exterior to become one. Unexpected details and finishes add texture and warmth to this strikingly sophisticated home.
