Consear House - Design+build custom residential
This home was unlike anything else in the area at the time, and was published in a local paper. Design+Build at its fullest, the renovations and addition of this personal home were 75% self-performed. The existing 1946, 900sf ranch was completely gutted and renovated, with a new 752sf addition that was designed and developed to challenge the local convention of what a home is.
Beyond the typical nods to sustainable and efficient materials, a few of this home’s defining characteristics are its unconventional curved and flat roofs, a convex, wood clad, stair tower ceiling, and a beautifully hidden jewel box like half bathroom beneath the stairs. The bathroom is identified only by the subtle glow from a ribbon of translucent panels, and accessed by a hidden touch-latch door.
