Project Q&A with the homeowner and pro

How big is the space?

Professional

4,500 sq. ft.

What was your biggest challenge and/or biggest takeaway working on this project?

Professional

Professional
The site sloped pretty steeply, which was a challenge. I built it in seven months to beat my deadline, which meant if something wasn't available when I needed it I had to go with something else.

How long did this project take?

Professional

Professional
Project Duration: 9-10 months Design: 2 months Building Permits: 3 weeks Construction: 7 months

What are some of the key materials you used?

Professional

Professional
I used natural wood quartz stack stone on the inside and outside. I used Ipe lumber?a Brazilian hardwood?on the floors and used mostly natural earth tone colors.

What was the homeowner's main goal or motivation for doing this project?

Professional

This is a home I designed for myself. Everybody said not to do modern, so I just had to do modern. I wanted to design a house that showcased modern as something that was warm, wonderful and spa-like. It pays homage to the history of the midcentury modern designers. It feels right for me because it's not trying to look old world. It's not trying to be something that it's not.

What's your favorite part of the new space?

I love the indoors-outdoor flavor of it. It's one of my favorite houses I've ever done.
