Private Residence, United States

A layered composition of overlapping horizontal and vertical forms in warm woods and local stones blend together to create this beautiful modern family home in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Soaring windows the full height of the great room and an open floor plan fill interior spaces with natural light, while internal soffits extend through the walls to form the roofs of the alfresco living areas, keeping the direct rays at bay and providing a seamless connection from indoor to outdoor living spaces. Large sliding doors in all the living rooms and the master suite open up to those outdoor spaces and the "Zen-like" pool area. Low trellis walkways organize the space and give it an intimate scale. A tiki bar with built-in grill complete the effect and make for perfect outdoor entertaining. An exterior staircase provides easy access to an exercise room, a bedroom suite and game rooms on the home's upper level.
