This 18,000 sq. ft, 1980’s house had the space, but lacked the character that the new owners wished, as they embarked on the next phase of their lives. Brian Hemingway was asked if the house could be transformed into a house more consistent with his work. A subsequent, substantial renovation introduced extensive use of West Coast Douglas Fir in newly clad structure, window systems and details. Through materials and details the resulting home was reborn, reflecting both the owners’ and the architect’s pursuit of an architecture that is imbued with a common worldview and aesthetic.
