Designed for an older neighborhood, this courtyard design marries timeless materials to a contemporary plan. The blue-gray slate roof floats above a window and soffit system of clear Douglas Fir. Hand-shaped, Texas cream limestone clads the entire exterior. In an effort to open the interior to the forested one-acre site, the courtyard side of the house is framed entirely in glass. Custom anigre doors and cabinets with minimal, flush, detailing throughout lends a warm and elegant feel to the interiors.
