This home, built on a hilly, south-facing site populated with mature heritage trees in an established neighborhood, finds its sophisticated and refined form through the meeting site constrains and traditional motifs. The two traditional gable forms, with a living cedar shake siding, are connected by a modern metal pavilion and are nestled deep into the hill allowing for southern exposure to both this home and the home to the north of it. The highly linear, open floor plan is adorned with sophisticated finishes including a sleek wall of custom cabinetry. The south side features floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that overlook a patio, while the north side has strategically placed windows to filter the view of the neighboring home. Additionally, the home takes advantage of sunken gardens and a green roof to augment the connection to nature on the upper and lowers levels.
The use of both black and white kitchen cabinets is a unique design choice for black and white kitchens, but it works well in this lovely kitchen, a study in dark and light. It incorporates a fantastic black-and-white marble backsplash, which brings together the kitchen’s many other elements, like dark hardwood floors and a white quartz countertop.
