“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” – T.S. Eliot
The arrival of triplet girls brought much joy to this couple and their son. Yet at the same time they knew a move away from their much beloved, but now too small, modernist home was on the horizon. Determined to stay in the same neighborhood, they searched for years and eventually found a large corner lot for sale allowing them to build the home they needed while still allowing them keep their children close to the schools and friends they love.
The house is modern, warm and spacious – providing ample accommodations for all four children, a pool table room for the husband to unwind from the day and cozy library for the wife, an avid reader. The use of wood and stone details throughout the architecture along with the use of complimentary furnishings give the home a decidedly organic feeling. With a nod to nature’s earth, sun and moon the circle is repeated throughout the house, notably in the circle Moooi lighting fixtures, the custom made circle mirror in the powder room, in the shape of several tables throughout the house and even in the plumbing fixtures.
Coming home to this house that is both new and yet familiar is a journey come full circle for this family.
