Distinguished Building Award Submission
Both in massing and exterior colors, the house consciously relates to the predominant neighborhood context of brick and stone residences. Its exterior fašade is made of limestone on the ground floor and an innovative terra-cotta cladding on the upper floors. The colors and textures of these materials harmoniously complement the residential character of the neighborhood.
The ground floor, the garage and the front and back yards are enclosed by a continuous stone wall. The volume of the upper two floors appears to be floating above the ground floor being separated by a continuous band of clerestory glass. All of the four levels are connected by a grand staircase that is visible from the outside through a monumental four story high window on the north elevation.
