We encourage our clients to look for and share with us design ideas and images that exemplify the qualities and character of places which they would like to have in their homes. Across the Pond is a great example of this process. The owners had studied many house designs and had collected examples and images of places in which they would like to live. Through discussions, diagrams, and schematic design, we distilled the essence of their preferences regarding relation of building to site and overall organization as well as exterior and interior spatial qualities. We were gratified to receive a message from the owners twelve years after the house completed construction saying, “Thank you for giving us such a great house that…is especially photogenic, but most importantly…extremely livable.”
