Mid-Century/Prairie House

1800 sf.

New build house, open plan first floor with a streamline balcony for South views to the front yard

Open plan house with garage designed as part of window elevations. House set back from street for large front yard, with entry path bridging over a fish pond. Brick façade selected to correspond to the neighborhood, but evoke a modern design that could have been built in the Mid-Century period

The horizontal brick supports the dynamic floors above and compliments the large shaded soffit. Windows and railings have horizontal bands to accentuate the elongate shape of the house

The interior is open plan, but separated into areas, a sunken living room and a nook dining room. A 2 story high picture window frames the open stringer staircase that leads to the second floor.
