The owners of this residence are empty nesters - two people living in a 6,000 sq ft space. The design challenge was to create a Georgian style home that felt intimate in scale but had the flexibility to accommodate family visitors and to host large work gatherings and fund raising events. The design solution was to zone the house in such a way that normal living activities would all occur on one floor. The event space was located below this floor on the ground level. The ground level opened to large outside terraces and breathtaking vistas. Guest sleeping accommodations were located above the main floor within the rafters. Dormers in these private suites added to the unique character of their visits.
