This residence, designed
in collaboration with the Steinberg Group, takes its shape
from the arc of the cul-de-sac upon which it rests. The primary
design element is a 30 ft high, 150 ft long wall of Mariah
stone which runs from the front entry through the interior
to the pool house at the rear. This wall separates the private
interior spaces of the master bedroom, library and study to
the north, while all other public spaces are to the south.
The color palate takes its cues from the abundance of “heritage” oak
trees on the property and regional traditions of organic
design. The material palate includes slate, cedar siding
stained to recall the finish and color of the oak trees,
bead-blasted zinc is used on the bridge and fireplaces, reflecting
the zinc roof. One of the unusual features of the lighting
design is the uplights which run the entire length of the
stone wall to emphasize its texture.
