As you approach the Binary House, you see the strikingly dynamic volumes of stucco and glass accented with brick and wood siding. The entry door lies protected beneath an expansive second story overhang. The first of many multiple use spaces, this area functions primarily as a carport but also makes for a fabulous covered outdoor room that can be used in concert with a rear yard for entertaining. The ground floor level serves as a perfect example of open plan living with a streamlined cook’s kitchen nestled between the living and dining areas. Overall the first floor creates an ideal space for family and friends. The generous expanses of glass protected by strategic overhangs ensure natural daylight will fill the space from multiple exposures without harsh direct sun. The stairs to the upper level are tucked behind the kitchen and lead to a large multi-purpose room which is the focus of the family-oriented spaces on the second level. This room could be a playroom, game room, home theater or lounge. The hall leading to the bedrooms features a vaulted ceiling with clerestory windows that fills this transition space with natural light which also filters down to the first level entry. The owner’s suite features a 12’ tall ceiling, multiple closets and built-in storage, and a private outdoor terrace. The efficient planning and compact form of the Binary House offer exceptional livability and value in a crisp modern package.
