Located on a busy stretch of Memorial Drive, this residence generously unites the clients’ wishes for a resort-like space with the amenities and comforts of a single-family dwelling. The plan of the house follows the curve of the street with a bow and arrow formation. One volume houses the private sleeping quarters; the other contains the living, dining and entertaining areas. The living area is bounded by water with a lily pond to the north. To the west, a koi pond is situated where a glass bridge takes visitors into the outdoor living space, which features a summer kitchen and lap pool. The master bedroom/bathroom suite is bounded by gardens on both sides. Tilt wall construction and a material palette of concrete, glass, and stone form the composition of the house.
