The Sunnybrook residence is a seeming project of paradoxes. Its design is modern, with careful symmetry, sharp corners, and open spaces. It is predominantly neutral in color, with warm and cool shades of grey, brown, and white in the detailing of the floors, walls, and furniture. Vibrant splashes of jewel tones accent this neutral canvass, however, creating a light but colorful ambiance that is always conscious of its natural environment.
This natural environment—a wooded lot situated just above a creek—is almost always visible through the large windows across the back of the house, allowing sunlight to illuminate the interior and bring dwellers to nature’s doorstep. A courtyard at the front, meanwhile, beckons visitors to move beyond the stone pathway, through the gate, and into the home’s inner realm.
