This urban infill residence presented several challenges with a complex site and program. The lot is 50’ x 250’ with a 10’ fall from curb to the back of the property. It required a below-grade, four-car garage and a separate one-bedroom apartment on the ground level. The main house included four bedrooms, offices, exercise room, golf simulator/media room, a wine room, family room, living, dining kitchen and a roof terrace with an outdoor and indoor kitchen.
The house was designed to face an interior courtyard with a pool, outdoor kitchen and deck. In order to create an outdoor living space on such a narrow lot, the living, dining, office and kitchen were located on the second level above the apartment which then was connected by a glass bridge to the bedrooms and remaining rooms. The back structure has three stories to take advantage of the grade change at the rear of the property. Exterior materials are zinc panels, board formed concrete, storefront windows and stucco. bmarchitects.com
