As a collaborative project between Setless Architecture and the client, with her own architectural eduction, this house took inspiration from the masters we all learn to admire at school. This house is a work of craft, with carefully planned spaces and one of a kind custom steel rail-way tie windows. It is both modern with its open floor plans and large areas of glazing, and classic in how it borrows from architectural history.
The courtyard space activated between the main house and the copper-clad coach house is a focal point of the project. Now several years later, the copper cladding of the coach house has turned to the beautiful brown and purple patina that copper is known for. Details in the interior reference elements of the main house, such as the custom crane rail profile hardware.
