  • In its form and function, we designed this new home with active family living in mind. Its L-shape plan shields a children’s play area, sports court, and a putting green in the backyard. We created a freestanding bike barn to store the kids’ cycles; it has the added benefit of preserving order in the garage. Inside the house, shared living spaces and the children’s rooms (including a basketball court-themed playroom) are touched with bright, stimulating colors, while the parents’ private quarters are finished in a palette of restful, neutral hues. The materials used on exterior of the building—cedar shingles and stone on the walls, slate sheathing the roof—were selected as a way of recalling family vacations in New England.
