A private residence in the woods for a young family looking to move out of the city. Simple massing and minimalist blocking of materials create a bold exterior with plenty of vista framing glass in the back to offset the privacy providing solid walls in the front.

The open plan first floor is punctuated by double height spaces in the kitchen and foyer, while a balcony bridge divides the second floor into a master suite and a kid’s and guest room end. This volumetric interaction between levels creates an unexpected complexity to the interior that the exterior massing might not express.
