The house is designed at an intimate scale, but feels big because it is an open floor concept and it features a high vaulted ceiling. This allows for a lofted guest room and a roof deck. The main floor is comprised of two main wings, the smaller private wing contains the master bedroom suite and is located towards the back of the house, shielded by the woods. The larger wing is for entertaining, with the kitchen located at one end and a glass wall at the other, which has access to a suspended balcony, and is facing the street. The house was designed and tested with energy modeling software to integrate natural day-lighting, and strategic views target and highlight the natural beauty of the forest in the backyard.
It is located in a suburban neighborhood in Edgewood, Kentucky, but questions notions of traditional suburban development by its form and massing. It is a self-expressive contemporary work amidst the blight of typical residential development.
