Cutting-Edge Contemporary Character
Greeting the world with a striking contemporary silhouette, this one-of-a-kind modern home sets new standards for residential urban living.
Designed by award-winning architect Kevin Daly—recognized for his ecologically and socially responsible projects—it focuses on environmental consciousness, harvesting light, utilizing natural ventilation, and gathering solar power to heat water, floors, and interior spaces.
With its progressive lines, textures, and angles, the façade exemplifies the link between architecture and fine art.
Daly’s firm strives to combine technological innovation, sustainability, and livability in their designs, and by all accounts, they succeeded here.
The floor plan accomplishes the rare feat of offering both an easy, airy, fluid openness and peaceful acoustic privacy.
Statement-making energy-efficient clerestory windows on both sides admit light throughout the day and are motorized to allow for passive cooling.
Among the chic spaces are three serene bedrooms, three sleek baths, spacious closets, a living room with a soaring ceiling, an office, a very private patio, and an open kitchen with a range from Wolf, a dishwasher from Bosch, and a refrigerator from Sub-Zero.
Flooring of hardwood, cork, and exposed-aggregate-polished concrete creates a variety of intriguing textures and tones.
The easily maintained landscaping was thoughtfully selected to be drought-resistant, and the irrigation system includes thoughtful rain sensors.
In pursuit of a “new urban identity,” the home includes a two-car garage outfitted to accommodate an electric vehicle, but with an eye toward a possible car-free future, the Metro Expo Line is steps away.
