Crescendo Design

Click the image to see more pictures of this project.  This client came to us, through GreenStar Homes, with a unique, European inspired design concept they had created.  The plan featured a courtyard and entry foyer that directly connects the front entry with the courtyard.

It was a pleasure to work with this flexible and well thought-out design.  The plan was able to be configured very nicely on a gently sloping corner lot in Middleton Hills.  With minimal alteration to the client’s concept, we were able to retain southern exposure in the courtyard, and keep each of the interior spaces in their desired location.  The configuration of the home maximizes the yard space of the site with the courtyard, and creates what is essentially another room of the home.  We also took advantage of the natural slope of the site with a partially exposed lower level, where an additional bedroom and naturally lit exercise room were created.  The home truly utilizes the full potential of its beautiful site.

In addition to the exposed lower level and the private courtyard (complete with water fountain and European-style granite pavers), this home also features a covered walkway that connects the home to its 3-car garage, complete with a second story guest flat. Inside, the home will be very private, as the master suite and away room are separated from the more public open spaces of the living room and kitchen.  The away room and master bath will overlook the courtyard, as will the private guest flat across the way above the garage.  The office on the second floor of the home will also overlook the courtyard and have a fantastic view of the surrounding area.  The screen porch will also be a great space to overlook the courtyard to the south and wooded area to the east.

The exterior of this home includes stone, EIFS and cement-board siding, in a composition inspired by the Prairie tradition.  This residence successfully blends the American Prairie style of Frank Lloyd Wright and the old-world courtyard feeling of Europe.
