Originally built by Philip Johnson in 1953 (Wiley House), acclaimed architects Roger Ferris + Partners LLC recently redesigned this modern day property by integrating a new private art gallery, pool residence and garage into the estate’s rural landscape of lush trees. The resulting modern structures had been diligently planned to not only respectfully complement, but dramatically highlight, the existing mid-century glass property which was also renovated in the procedure.
A striking component of this property is the restored 19th century barn which now houses the new art gallery resplendent with stark white walls and professional lighting to spotlight the modern operates. With its gabled roof and solid ebony facade, this minimalist developing resonates with an immense simplicity that stuns in contrast to the sunken pool house nestled into the hillside just below it.
A stone retaining wall on home creates a defined focal point, bringing together the barn, original glass residence, pool property and garage which is situated at the estate’s entrance. The intended style additional unifies the pool home and garage, which both rest at the very same height as the barn’s stone foundation.
Evoking distinct minimalism, the wood-trimmed and stone pool home’s interior furnishings are clean-lined with a mod metallic pewter sofa, mustard fabric side chairs, and white table with matching tulip chairs alongside the white marbled sink countertop. A mirrored-wall installation replete with square cutouts cleverly mimics the recessed lighting. Just by way of the sliding glass door panels off the lounging area and past an imposing art sculpture, many actions ascend onto the lawn which encompasses the in-ground, circular pool.
Exceptional consideration was taken by the architects to solely use supplies for the new structures which seamlessly blended into and beautified the original glass-ensconced residence and its surrounding stonewall style. The renovated interiors of this two-story residence bear a equivalent color schematic to the pool home, with golds, grays and metallics as prominent, but with soaring dark-wood framing the glass walls, exhibiting the exterior trees magnificently.
Revolutionary lighting design across the 7,000 square-foot home, no matter whether amongst the lofty foliage or contemporary structures, further creates a picturesque horizon for this meticulously-restored and freshly-renovated modern nation estate.
