Exterior walls of glass, coupled with doors that disappear into pockets, create a seamless indoor/outdoor interaction. Inside, there are few walls. The flowing spaces were sculpted to control the natural light, which is harsh and direct in some places but, in the heart of the house, filters in softly through a north-facing skylight.
Strategically placed windows frame the views, proportion the walls, and hide neighboring houses. From the curving galley kitchen, carefully controlled sight lines extend through the breakfast room to the garden beyond a view that expands when the doors at the end are retracted into the wall.
Windows take on particular drama in the bedrooms, each of which has one glass wall. Privacy is maintained by cantilevered wing walls that extend over the garden and direct the views away from neighboring homes, while a metal-clad roof overhang provides shade.
Looking back over the years and selectingthe projects that represent the best of Abramson Teiger Architects allowed us to reflect also on the hundreds, possibly thousands, of people who contributed along this journey. It is because of the dedication of these people that this body of work exists. We are grateful that these individuals reached for excellence and took a personal interest in contributing to our projects.
