The Basler Residence, titled Twist by the architects, sits on a corner lot with two faces to the street. Its exterior facades blend well into the surrounding area, but the house is different from its neighbors. The client sought out Randy Brown Architects of Omaha, Nebraska to design a modern family home. The resulting house is a hybrid with attention to context, and a sleek, modern interior. Although the exterior of the house was made to fit in among the neighborhood houses, Randy Brown Architects artfully merged the traditional form with modern touches. The house has traditional sloped roofs with slate shingles that help it blend into its suburban development, and a masonry exterior. The light colored stone of the facades is broken up by large window bays with black steel detailing to make the home more modern.
