A simple single story garage was enlarged with two additional stories in matching brick and the openings filled with large industrial-style windows as a nod to its utilitarian past. The building is topped with a contrasting zinc clad master floor with ipe louvers that provide privacy and shield from solar heat gain.
Beneath a central skylight sits a floating steel and oak staircase flanked by a towering 50′ tall millwork divider with smoked mirrors that bounce and diffuse light throughout the day.
Multiple exterior terraces seamlessly integrate interior and exterior entertaining spaces becoming the backdrop for informal family encounters.
The main terrace is equipped with a pergola for privacy and passive solar shading. A set of retractable steel doors provide unobstructed access from the bluestone paved terrace with a modern outdoor kitchen to the interior.
Gracious sunlit bedrooms are made easily accessible with a private elevator. Material choices remain neutral and balanced throughout maintaining a harmonious flow from room to room.
