Shingle Style in The Hollow
A classic shingle style designed as the architects’ home and studio. The two overscaled gable dormers on the street elevation spring from the lower story roof, concealing the extent of the second story volume. The garage is pulled well back from the street creating a separate form, though still connected to the living space.
The 9’ ceilings of the entry level are punctuated by a lofty cathedral ceiling with four large skylights at one end of the U-shaped plan. At the other end, the breakfast table sits in an octangular tower poking into the rear terrace and landscape. The upper floor bedrooms, baths, and laundry are carved into the steep 12:12 roof.
Interior and exterior details are simple and elegant, blending modern and traditional design.
