Hello again readers.
This modern design came out of thinking about a building as an instrument or a machine (similar to Le Corbusier’s description for his Villa Savoye, which he called a machine for living). I was inspired by the gears in a pocket watch and the shape of a cam. The basic shape of the house is a single circle with radiating wings for a screened porch and a 2-car garage. I sited the house near a meandering brook in a wooded locale. It seemed to fit in my mind. The house has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths with a deck off the living room and a open air 3rd floor roof deck partially concealed behind the radius of the circle. Also on the 3rd floor is a yoga room/exercise room. The house has fireplaces in both the yoga room and the formal dining room.
