Contemporary Comforts Inside
The design of this plan combines a traditional / European exterior with a contemporary floor plan. One of my favorite design features is the glass block wall in the gallery. Upon entering the home one would notice the contorted flames of an inviting fire beyond – a very dramatic effect. I believe you’ll also appreciate the way in which the three-sided fireplace and entertainment center are used to separate the great room dining and kitchen area (see illustration). Skylights introduce even more natural light into the space. The “peripheral vision” of the kitchen and breakfast areas are enhanced through window placement. Throughout the home we were very conscious of traffic patterns. Notice how the gallery transitions from the public to private spaces. Also take note of the master bedroom’s walk-in-closet with two doors – one in the master bedroom and one in the vaulted master bath. This simple door placement adds so much to the livability of the house. We include a bonus room in a design whenever possible and the one in this design offers unlimited possibilities.
