Best of Both Worlds
The “Best of Both Worlds” home has a lot of contrasts that we dealt with as conceptual ideas and realities: suburban/rural location, flat/hilly site, single-storey/split-level/mezzanine, public/private zone, front/back, in/out, up/down, custom/conventional build, large/small, north/south, sun/views…and so on! After deciding that the “split” house may not be the best omen for the clients’ relationships, I thought perhaps “Best of Both Worlds” might be the most appropriate name for this lovely family home!
