  • Landscape

    This modern house was a departure from the traditional style of new homes in the area. One of the main challenges was that the property entered from a busy thoroughfare, but the depth of the property allowed for a substantial setback from the road. Although the front looks open and inviting with it’s expansive areas of glass, these areas are primarily circulation space that connect the living spaces oriented to the more bucolic backyard.

    The interior features open spaces and well considered materials and finishes. Energy efficient systems and appliances were employed throughout.

THE OTHER MID CENTURY MODERN
     
     Split levels and ranch houses may not quite call to mind the classic mid century modern houses that have become so desirable. But they do offer a great opportunity to create a modern home for this century. With our commitment to modern design, we see potential in these homes that may elude others. This video takes you through a split level in need of updating, with an eye towards re-imagining this as a desirable home for today's lifestyle. 


Reviews (as seen on Houzz)

We hired gary for building our home which had elements of a knock down/gut renovation/new construction all rolled into one project. When we started the project, we were sure that we wanted a contemporary/modern home but could not describe what elements combine to make a home a modern home. We visited one of Gary’s earlier projects and it was apparent as soon as we walked in that his was the design aesthetic we were seeking. We were relieved at that point to have found the expert that would deliver our dream home. Sure enough, the home is everything we wanted and more with an overall appeal that makes people stop and stare as they pass by. The money spent was directed exactly where needed – comfort, space, style, functionality, light, durability, etc. And not into unnecessary embellishments that added nothing to the living experience. Moreover, there is a certain balance that Gary found with the wooded lot which makes the house feel like it always belonged there. Working with Gary made the total experience of building our house an absolute pleasure as we were reassured very quickly into the project that the outcome would be something special. I would recommend Gary without hesitation to anyone considering a new construction or a renovation project.

We began working with Gary before we made a bid on a new home. He helped us envision what we wanted it to be and saw us through from potential to completion. His plans were fantastic – both the bathroom and kitchen he designed were entirely new spaces in the house, but they seemed as though they should always have been there. He connected us with an amazing contractor who did beautiful work, which Gary helped see through. He also helped us select all of the materials and appliances and guided us through something we weren't interested in immersing ourselves in. All of his choices reflected our taste, but we made them quickly together, which was exactly how we wanted it. It was a great experience and just six months after purchasing the new house, it's everything we ever wanted it to be. If we have more projects to do in the future, we will contact Gary again.

When we decided to renovate our old house, we interviewed several architects and gary was a breath of fresh air. When we described the modern design features we wanted, the other architects simply didn't get it. Gary was the only one who listened carefully and ensured that we could get what we envisioned. My husband and I spent several months trying to decide on the perfect design and Gary was patient, helpful and supportive throughout the whole process. Despite numerous changes and updates, he worked with us calmly and was able to turn around requests and suggestions quickly. He always provided valuable advice and made himself available whenever we had any questions or concerns. It was fun learning about all the various options in the design process and picking out the materials with him. We are very happy with the end result! We highly recommend Gary.
