At SKD, we design exciting and inviting spaces where families create memories. With careful planning, we tucked this bowling alley into the homes lower level, incorporating dramatic lighting, vignettes, and ceiling details to enhance the mood. The result? Recreation taken to a new level.

Who says that kids can’t have their own cool space?
 
In this children’s bedroom wing, we laid out the bedrooms so all opened directly into a common lounge, perfect for activities, just for family, or fun with friends.  The space is simple, but an interesting ceiling design and playful furnishings makes this space great for lounging, TV activities, collaborative games or study.  It offers a cozier separation from the main active parts of the home.

On this large, hilly and wooded parcel of land, we fulfilled the owner’s dream for casual living with a contemporary interpretation of a mountain rustic home. Although large, this home gracefully tucks into this bowl-shaped site with mature trees wrapping as a backdrop at its highpoint. Grade slopes steeply from the street up to the rear, making it a challenge to design a walkout while allowing for main level outdoor living at grade.
 
Knowing the site would be large, we built an effective building envelope. The site opens to the south and southwest, supporting the use of photovoltaics. Make sure to follow us as we showcase the rest of this home over the next few weeks.Image attachment

Every detail throughout the home was artfully and developed; even the exterior soffits have consistent design patterns that are repeated inside. The utilization of glass, wood, and stone bring the outside in, and takes advantage of the natural site amenities and pond views, particularly in the active spaces of the home. ... See MoreSee Less
