Intersecting wings divide public from private gardens, each room flooded with sunlight. Vertical grain oak cabinetry, exposed Douglas fir trusses, and exterior cedar siding are stained translucent turquoise to compliment copper plated steel brackets and copper inlays in the floor. Colored concrete terraces and counters reflect the coppery clay tile roofing. The plaster at the fireplace continues in soft washes on the walls and ceilings. The canted newel post of the oak railing anchors the stairway to the bedrooms above. Lofty ceilings and carefully placed windows and skylights invite patterns of light that change throughout the day. Protruding bays articulate the building mass and details in wood, stucco and copper respect the history and traditional atmosphere of the neighborhood.
