CHATHAM IN PROGRESS

New house across the street 

Our clients for this new house in Chatham, NJ had already renovated their current home. But space was tight, and when a larger property became available across the street, they decided it was time to build a new home for themselves. The wife loves modern design, and her husband wanted something with warmth and character. Our challenge has been to find the right balance to satisfy both of their tastes while ending up with a design that doesn't feel like a compromise. 
Cantilevered canopies add dimensional relief and interest to the flat surfaces, and a mix of cement fiber panels, stucco, and cedar cladding add warmth and texture.
Proposed Main Level Plan
The zoning restrictions in town presented limitations on the size of the house. The open plan of the living areas will make the limited footprint feel spacious, allowing full views across the length of the house in both directions.
Proposed Second Level Plan
The second floor features a generous central hall area and stair open to below.
