project was done in collaboration with Jeff Harnar Architects.
Mr. Harnar originally built this residence 14 years ago
for a client/friend. The client has now remarried and returned
to Jeff Harnar to enlarge the residence to its present
size of 8000 square feet. We were brought in to create
the luxury home interiors as well as the residential lighting
design and layout. Our client wished to alter the original
Sante Fe design into something which he described as “a
more Zen-like simplicity”.
A new wing was added to create a master suite. New limestone
floors have been added throughout to create a sense of continuity
between old and new. This material now flows out to include
the exterior deck and pool areas. All of the interior surfaces
were simplified. The living room fireplace was redesigned
to accommodate a large-screen media system. A new color palatte
was introduced, which included the addition of honey-colored
waxed Italian plaster walls, echoing the colors of the landscape.
The original kitchen/breakfast room was doubled in size to
accommodate the growing family’s needs.
