Light-filled living and dining areas and an open kitchen are all contained within the ground-floor module. The space can be closed off by slightly iridescent curtains in “Decipher” by Maharam, hung on a curtain track with 8" drop chains. The centerpiece of the space is Artemide’s Logico Suspension lamp, which illuminates the elegant M.I.R. table by Cassina and understated Laleggera chairs by Alias.
Wieler and Tung wanted a space conducive to entertaining, and this open kitchen delivers. It features a stainless steel refrigerator, Pro-Style gas range, hood, backsplash, and two-rack tub dishwasher, all from Jenn-Air. The ebony countertop, which allows the chef to interact easily with guests, is from Caesarstone. The distinctive faucet and Poise kitchen sink are from Kohler. Maple cabinets by Merillat (installed flush with the wall to save space and look sleek) provide ample storage space for all kitchen essentials. The under-counter storage space holds Victoria china designed by Oscar Tusquets for Driade. The bread board was designed by Antonio Citterio for Iittala’s Tools collection. The wine rack and oil/vinegar cruets are from Rosendahl.
The master bedroom has a number of windows in varying shapes and sizes, providing unique views to the woods outside. The bed, chest of drawers, side tables, and geometric linens are all from West Elm. The Tolomeo wall lamps are by Artemide.
When Wieler and Tung are in their office (if they can resist the lure of the roof deck), they can work or just relax in this happy Tulip chair designed by Jeffrey Bernett. Sound system by Bang & Olufsen.
A view from the top of the stairs, past the office to the master bedroom. Sunlight filters through extensive fenestration to the hall, which features a runner by Emma Gardner. Artwork by Campbell Laird hangs over B&B Italia seating in the couple’s office. Not shown is a Herman Miller desk complete with Aeron work chair.
The private site allowed for generous windows and decks, but the Res 4 design could be adapted to
a more urban setting as well. Ultimately, the Dwell Home proves that a manufactured house can be site-specific. The design, scale, and materials are appropriate to the climate and context.
