A secluded urban house on a quiet street, 333 house was designed and built for a retired couple focused on family and an immense appreciation for great art and music. The home design beautifully integrates clean gallery-quality spaces with comfortable gathering areas for grandchildren and friends, while featuring a yoga studio over the garage behind the house that facilitates the couple’s and community members’ practice of balancing mind and body.
Similarly, balance between the internal and external environments is achieved through extensive and well-placed windows, glass walls that open onto deck spaces, and comfortable, convenient exterior gathering areas. The extensive glazing echoes the couple’s environmentally-conscious urban lifestyle by blurring the lines between exterior and interior environments. A collaborative project with many craftsmen involved, 333 house is an exhibition of intense attention to detail and sustainability in both the interior and exterior home design. A garden roof section, sustainably harvested wood floors and millwork, and strategic natural ventilation contribute to the home’s beauty, functionality, and eco-consciousness.
