The primary goals of the Cloud Residence project required completely rethinking the existing ill-conceived spaces, improving the overall flow to enhance connections to the outdoors and bring in as much daylight as possible. The final design features abundant natural light, sustainable materials, and fully integrated indoor/outdoor rooms.The front of the house, with its gracious porch and native landscaping, provides a neighborhood-friendly gesture towards the street. The house is more modern than its counterparts on the block and in careful keeping with the scale of the original context of the cottage. Its bold color scheme and sharp geometric lines often attract the interest of passersby.The combination of significant and challenging constraints, along with insightful homeowners presented an opportunity for great results. The full engagement and trust of the homeowners throughout this project were key elements of its success.
