Dawn Farmer walks from the kitchen to a guest bedroom. The seven-foot-tall doorway lines up with the glass doors and cabinetry throughout the house—which is made of
13-layer multi-ply apple core with rift-oak veneer.
Seven-foot-high glass doors bring the garden, landscaped by Jay Griffith, into the living room. A skylight brings even more light into the white-walled room with polished-concrete floors. There is a splash of color in a custom rug designed by Dawn Farmer and made by Della Robbia, which also made the sofas.
Dawn Farmer looks out from her office at Darby, one of the couple’s two dogs, in the front yard. The house is clad in smooth stucco top-coated with white Venetian plaster, and has a perimeter wall made of Cor-Ten steel panels and stuccoed cinder blocks.
Dawn Farmer sits on the bed in the master bedroom. The white leather bed was designed by Pierre Kozely and manufactured by Della Robbia. The view carries through the master bathroom to the yard on the other side of the house.
The front, middle, and rear yards are conceived as outdoor rooms. Pierre Kozely relaxes
in the middle yard in a prototype of an outdoor furniture line by Pietrarte. A bronze Ganesh is on a raised pedestal in the middle of a small water feature.
