The owners had demanding jobs that took them all over the world. They needed a home that while cutting edge in every way, was also a place to unwind and unplug. The house was designed to be a place of retreat and rejuvenation of the body and mind. It should have focal points in the home to highlight antique family furniture pieces or her grandmother's beautiful textile art. While having an open floor plan that would feel light and airy, the house should also have nooks that feel private and contemplative. It should function well to host parties or spontaneous get-togethers while still maintaining intimacy of spaces when just the owners were home.
Our client was looking to be brought into the process of the design work. After decades of looking at and admiring modern architecture, she had strong design ideas that she was looking for Meadowlark to draw out and put into form.
As the design progressed, we realized this design would be perfect for erecting a panelized house. From foundation to roof, this house was built with panels manufactured off-site for durability and superior energy performance.
Over the years, this has become an iconic house. Clean and minimalist, it is also organic and personal at the same time. The home is exceedingly comfortable and efficient, and effortlessly hosts just the owners, or groups of people. Outstanding views and focal points exist nearly everywhere you stand in the home.
