The design of the Gard Residence was driven by the client’s peaceful, modern aesthetic. It is a 4-bedroom, 3-bath custom 2800 square foot residence quietly highlighted by the standard western-themed homes in the area.
The client aimed for a home that reflected a prairie style structure with a Zen Japanese infusion. The house successfully bridges the gap of prairie and modern design. Some of the notable features of the house include 14’ high main living area with clear story windows surrounding the living, dining and kitchen areas. There was careful placement of windows to match the private and more public areas on the site. The house offers an isolated guest quarter meant for visiting family and friends.
