Located on a busy stretch of Memorial Drive, this residence generously unites the clients’ wishes for a resort-like space with the amenities and comforts of a single family dwelling. The plan of the house follows the curve of the street with a bow and arrow formation.
One volume houses the private sleeping quarters; the other contains the living, dining and entertaining areas. The living area is surrounded by water, with a lily pond to the north and a koi pond on the west, where a glass bridge takes visitors to the outdoor living space with a summer kitchen and lap pool. The master bedroom/bathroom suite is bounded by gardens on both sides.
Tilt wall construction and a material palette of concrete, glass, and stone form the composition of the house, while Blanchard Magnolia, Shumard Red Oak, Purple Vitex and Black Bamboo surround the site.
