Project Description

Sloans Lake Residence

This well considered home expresses the artistic side of the homeowner as a collection of experiential spaces seamlessly joined together. A mix of textures softens clean, masculine edges. And a palette of neutrals is accented with hints of bright color.

On the exterior, the staircase tower takes the spotlight as a large anchoring mass. Made of brick, it represents permanence while tying into neighborhood’s material context. Inside the tower, the staircase retains the folding shapes, but on a smaller scale. As you ascend, landings allow a direct experience of natural light streaming down from the massive skylight above. The effect is an anchoring “root” of 2 twisting forms— the lower stair grows from the foundation, while the upper stairs flare skyward, beckoning the observer upward.
