This  custom-designed 4,500 square foot house  is locacted in New York in an east Long Island community's master-planned by Richard Meier.  The designers at architecture firm,  TsAO & McKown faced two major challenges: designing for an unknown concept client and rooting the home on virtually flat terrain in a young forest.   The design pairs the human need for both order and chaos while creating a onnection to the surrounding landscape.

The designers manipulated the topography and created the first level slightly below grade.   Providing a slight incline in the typography served as way to reduce the impact of the volume of the home and provide a private  outdoor spaces.  The interior design of the home also has an intimate feel with a warm color palette.  Shades of rust mix well with grays and mustard yellow adds an unexpected pop.  Dimension and depth is added with warm wood tables and built-ins.

The sensitivity to the human condition in the design  makes this home appealing to a broad audience.  Making me think whoever snatched this beauty up is quite fortunate.
