Stone contemporary-porch


The house and its guest house are a composition of iconic shed volumes sited between Highway 1 to the East and the end of a cul-de-sac to the West. The Eastern façade lends a sense of privacy and protection from the highway, with a smaller entrance, high windows, and thickened wall. The exposed framing of the thickened wall creates a floor to ceiling feature for books in the living room. The Western façade, with large glass barn doors and generous windows, opens the house to the garden, The Sea Ranch, and the ocean beyond. Connecting the two façades, an enclosed central porch serves as a dual entrance and favorite gathering space. With its pizza oven and easy indoor/outdoor connections, the porch becomes an outdoor kitchen, an extension of the main living space, and the heart of the house.

Lisa Frederick added this to Director's Chairs Get Starring Role
A quartet of club chairs? So old hat. Instead, director's chairs bring a laid-back West Coast vibe to this Eastern-influenced living space.

Love how this casual, laid back design is perfectly balanced with just the right amount of elegance/class that the stairs, as well as a few other items in the pic, bring to the scene!

This is the entrance to the house from the enclosed porch with the pizza oven and the 2 walls with sliding glass doors, one to the yard and one to the porch -- this one would be to a patio for the back of our house -- going out to the enclosed room area here from the washroom.
