In this video, we'll meet Sarah and Jason Yee and their two young boys, Mercer and Hayes, and see their beautiful modern house in a nature preserve in Carmel, California, designed by Lake Flato Architects.
The house, a series of low, interconnected structures with an easy indoor-outdoor flow, is ideal for the Yees, a family that values clean, modern design; materials that can withstand the wear and rigors of two boisterous young children; and raising their kids with a strong connection to nature.
Through interviews and footage focusing on the back-story of the design process; the resulting architecture; and the personal, comfortable way the family inhabits their space, you'll learn how one California couple forged a unique, kid-friendly home without sacrificing good design.
When not writing, editing, or combing design magazines and blogs for inspiration, Jaime Gillin is experimenting with new recipes, traveling as much as possible, and tackling minor home-improvement projects that inevitably turn out to be more complex than anticipated.
We’re inviting you to join us to create a place where we can inspire and share with each other every day, collaborate on collections, projects and stories, ask questions, discuss and debate ideas.
