Designed by award winning local architects Bercy Chen Studio, these two houses speak the same design language, rotationally symmetrical in plan, yet with each responding to its own topography creating volumetric specificity. The scale and proportions are modern, with axial alignments, orthogonal lines, and rhythmic solids and voids. Yet the courtyards, orientation to the landscape, and selection of materials are evocative of ancient cultures.
A series of floor-to-ceiling windows and doors brings nature to the center of the homes, and roof decks encourage elevated outdoor living. Inside, the open plan, white oak floors, honed Lueders limestone, and Brazilian hard wood give the homes a distinctly informal and very livable feel.
