Engineering: Weissman Engineering Co, PC

Decoration/Furnishings: M Gerard Interior Design

Builder: Cedar Crest Construction

Architectural Scope of Work: Design of new residence with site design and landscape integration.

Architectural Initiatives: The site is a wooded and steeply sloping property providing expansive views of the mountains to the north and an agricultural preserve to the south. The spaces of the residence are organized in section to allow the experience of changing topography and lighting orientation throughout the residence. Exterior areas relate in a dynamic arrangement of spaces that follow the topography of the site. The entry level is the lowest and the living spaces are oriented to optimize view opportunities and open onto the pool terrace and private lawn area. Covered exterior living areas as well as roof terraces and gardens further promote interaction between interior and exterior spaces.
