Schultz Miller joined architect Stuart Silk and interior designer Amy Baker to help the homeowners realize their vision for a home that blended both traditional and contemporary architecture.
The design called for paired down traditional elements, such as eaves without overhangs, which include an integrated gutter system, a minimalist detail with a lot of painstaking construction behind it. On the other hand, the entry hall features two strictly modern elements: a tall, textured steel door and a dramatic floating staircase.
The crisp interior demanded the precise installation and detailing of wide plank oak flooring, wood trim and ceiling beams, and hand-plastered walls.
The distinctive look of the exterior was achieved with traditional gabled forms but modern materials, including painted steel windows and zinc roof shingles.
