Coffey Park Shaker
The idea of what a home could and should be is different depending on not only what the homeowner envisions but also on what the general character and development pattern of the neighborhood is. Historically, homes were designed around practical items that met specific needs. For instance the Coffey Park Shaker residence incorporated 24” wide eaves to shade the home since there were no trees left in the area after the fires and the solar heat gain would be high without the benefit of trees for shade. Design-wise the clean lines of the roof eaves are not only practical and keep the design within the general character of the neighborhood but also as expressed as roof planes give it a hint of modern which is what the owner wanted us to achieve.
On the interior we created a series of ensuites wrapped around the great room and connected via a stairway/hallway mezzanine giving the interior a modern sculptural quality.
As we continue to proceed through the construction process it is becoming clear that this home is special both inside and out.
