Winner of 2012 Merrit Award for Built Residential Project(New Jersey chapter of the American Institute of Architects) Quarry Street is located in the heart of Princeton, a 5-minute walk to Princeton University campus, public library, Art Council, shops, restaurants, and train station.  This new contemporary house fits well into the closely-knit John Witherspoon neighborhood: it is positioned close to the street maintaining a consistent urban street frontage.  The horizontal siding in the front picks up on the horizontal siding typical of the surrounding houses, while the alternating siding sizes, vertical siding, and large panels on other sides accentuate the playful and sculptural volumes of the house.  The cantilevered car port fits with the tradition of side driveways.  The front steps, porch and a large kitchen widow facing the street are well suited for conversing and waving to neighbors.
