George Residence

Bath, Ohio    map
Status: Complete

Set on former farmland with gently rolling terrain and a dense coverage of trees, a major challenge was to work within subdivision covenants intended to direct design toward traditional vocabulary, yet achieve the classically modern dwelling desired by the owners. The result is a house whose forms, composition, and primary materials - masonry and standing seam metal - evoke farm structures, but which gains a sense of urbanity through color, scale and texture. The interior uses automotive paint, stainless steel, glass and bleached maple to create a gallery-like setting for the owner's collection of art and furnishings.
