Schwartz and Architecture

The most noteworthy quality of this suburban home was its dramatic site overlooking a wide- open hillside. The interior spaces, however, did little to engage with this expansive view. Our project corrects these deficits, lifting the height of the space over the kitchen and dining rooms and lining the rear facade with a series of 9' high doors, opening to the deck and the hillside beyond.

Thank you. It is exterior siding painted in Benjamin Moore Adagio or Sterling Grey I believe.

Love the granite wrapping around the wall. How did you accomplish this? It is awesome!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A cool/warm relationship is always a natural pairing. Especially in the company of neutrals, cool/warm tones separate elements effectively.

This feature wall in a modern space acts as both a back wall for kitchen cabinetry, as well as an accent wall on the reverse. It surely adds a design appeal to what would otherwise be a plain, non-utilized wall.
