House Exterior

Homey Transitional Outdoors by Mark Hoesterey

The owner's primary aspiration was to design a home that gives comfort and security to his kids while balancing his desire for personal expression. Situated in an established neighborhood, the use of local stone grounds the residence in its surroundings and the introduction of copper cladding makes the structure unique within this context. The copper, as it patinas, will turn a warm, rich brown color that with the stone and glass, creates a house designed to last well into the next century. Large expanses of north-facing glass allow for an abundance of light and minimize the exposure to the strong summer sun. Native grasses and extensive ground cover accent a landscape that reduces water use and minimizes maintenance.
