The New American Home 2012 – Custom Residence +
The 2012 New American Home

This 2012 New American Home is a re-interpretation of the Classic White Box of the 60’s and 70’s that was made so popular by such famous architects and artists as Le Corbusier and Richard Meier.

While honoring the architecture of the past, the 2012 New American Home represents the priorities that are important to today’s lifestyle… details rather than size, leading edge technology, and functional and transitional spaces that have a style and feel that evokes calm and serenity. All this in addition to the architectural significance and environmentally sensitive details found throughout.

Comprised of walls of movable glass panels and motorized screens, the floor plan was designed so indoor and outdoor spaces flow into one another. The use of abundant natural lighting within the volumetric and spatial design creates a “wow” factor while also providing a comfortable and serene living environment.

At 4,100 square feet, the house was displayed to appeal to the empty nester, and has four additional rooms that could be converted to bedrooms if needed. The two bedrooms, a master suite with private workout studio, outdoor yoga deck, private sitting room, and spa-like master bath accessible by public stairs or private elevator and take up the entire second floor. The guest suite is located on the main floor with an en-suite bath. Additional public spaces include an art gallery, an artist studio, three-second floor decks, and a lower level patio covered connecting to the pool and summer kitchen.
