Forest Park Southeast New Construction

This three bedroom home with an attached studio apartment was designed with a formal front elevation that responds to the adjacent structures in height and setback, while adding new textures with a custom rain screen façade in colors that draw their tones from the traditional bricks of the neighborhood. The home is organized around a courtyard, a private destination apart from the busy urban surroundings. The scale of the courtyard is reduced by stepping the building down to a one-story wing containing the living room and master bedroom, with an overhead door to allow for a dynamic indoor/outdoor relationship.

It is a Gunite pool that was constructed onsite.
