The Nethermead residence blurs the line between indoor and outdoor living. The core spaces: dining, living, and kitchen are housed under the broad, exposed-frame pavilion roof, along with the outdoor kitchen and porch. The almost seamless transition between the interior rooms and exterior spaces draws the outdoors inside and contributes to a sense of living within the forest. Upon entering the home you are greeted by the warm glow of clear-finished cypress walls and rich walnut-stained floors. Great attention is given to the relationships of materials along with the quality of light and the composition of space.
