A true modern, yet warm approach to materials defines the architectural palette while function and strict envelope observance bring in a sound functional frame. Both homes feature 3 bedroom layouts on four levels, one of them fully underground. Extended site setbacks promote privacy and create a S | W oriented enclave with respect to the adjacent building. The E ( r ) home's detached garage offers ample space for a living room extension with BBQ, outdoor dining, seating and and private hot tub areas with a permanent trellis, which spills off to the horizontal rib lattice making an aesthetic privacy screen from the neighboring property. The basement portion of the LR features a home theater, wine cellar and sauna.
