Morningside’s brief was direct - create a private, resort-like forever home for a professional couple. Two simple forms sit effortlessly atop a concrete foundation on a steep and narrow site. These forms belie an open interior that contains ample amounts of public entertaining and intimate private space, centered around a private pool deck. Structure plays a key role, as the home expresses how it was built, and materials were chosen for durability and tactility. We focused on simple and deliberate solutions, and the result is a home that provides tranquility and respite from life in the city.
