Tobin Smith Architect worked closely with the owners to create an exceptionally rich home that celebrates the unique aspects of the site. This multi-story residence contains a Rift White Oak paneled ceiling in the great room. The floor used throughout the main level is a select grade Walnut which contrasts the lightness of the main room’s ceiling. The homeowners requested minimal pin knots and no sap to ensure a high quality, visually clean floor. Walnut Wall Paneling and shelving encases the sunken den making this a warm intimate gathering space.
