The existing art gallery was renovated and a second gallery was added. A new entrance for the galleries was included. A new vault provides security and is environmentally safe for the art collection.
Teitsch-Kent-Fay Architects, P.C. designed a house to fit within a spectacular grove of trees. The use of stone, both in the landscaping and the elevation “grounds” the building in this magnificent environment, and the intricate development of roofing elements allows the essentially horizontal floor plan layout to emphasize and harmonize with the vertical qualities of the site. The siding selections / orientations, and deck elements also enhance the vertical qualities. Design and construction were very carefully planned to preserve as many trees as possible, and integrate them within the design composition.
