From the designer. The Meadow House visually and physically blends open exterior spaces with intimate private spaces without compromising the integrity of either. Landscape acts as a bridge, creating a seamless flow between interior and exterior and between living and sleeping areas. Located within the setting of a dense American suburb, the neighborhood is lined with modern two- and three-story mansions, many of which are over 10,000 sf. The client was adamant about departing from what is typically built in the neighborhood by constructing a smaller, single story home. By taking into consideration the site’s solar exposure and context, the Meadow House reinterprets the traditional divide of American front and back yards to create living spaces that are deeply connected to natural light and the surrounding landscape.
