Curved House

The Curved House is a modern residence with distinctive lines. Conceived in plan as a U-shaped form, this residence features a courtyard that allows for a private retreat to an outdoor pool and a custom fire pit. The master wing flanks one side of this central space while the living spaces, a pool cabana, and a view to an adjacent creek form the remainder of the perimeter.

A signature masonry wall gently curves in two places signifying both the primary entrance and the western wall of the pool cabana. An eclectic and vibrant material palette of brick, Spanish roof tile, Ipe, Western Red Cedar, and various interior finish tiles add to the dramatic expanse of the residence. The client’s interest in suitability is manifested in numerous locations, which include a photovoltaic array on the cabana roof, a geothermal system, radiant floor heating, and a design which provides natural daylighting and views in every room.

Shane D. Inman added this to 8 Fireplaces to Feed Your Kitchen's Style
Modern. This modern kitchen has a dividing wall as a fireplace, making a bold design statement with a streamlined flame that travels from one side of the room to the other.Design tip: If you have a large wall that you are retrofitting into a fire feature, don't forget about the beauty of a double-sided fireplace, as it can really open up a small room.

Really like the large island w/ sink as the kitch counter seems always to be a busy, central area where everyone here parks their things. Also : if large amount of light (re: large windows) is bathing any room darker finishes attenuate a sense of overexposure.
