Old Stone Highway House

The Old Stone Highway house was designed by designer John Berg and is concieved as a modern interpretaion of the Long Island agricultural vernacular while also incorporating the use of environmentally low impact building technology. The buildings form stretches out along a spine of interior and exterior spaces separated by glass walls which fold open during warm weather. A subtle topography of stepped walls, volumes and roof planes anchors the house comfortably to the relatively flat site and satisfies the clients need for dramatic spaces within a quiet envelope. – Via – Apartmenttherapy

    simply stunning. if you want to see homes like this in Chicago, i recommend the Gold Coats or Lincoln Park, other then that Bucktown and Wicker Park also have their share of simplistic and line formed architecture. great post.
    thanx much

    I like it, although i would encorporate more earthy, and natural tones into the design, possibly with some subtle, yet noticable, splashes of color to add accents that would really stand out to anyone who enters the home. Some decorative stonework, possibly eroding into an interior water feature, would also be very nice. The grey slate flooring and white paint on both the walls and the ceiling come off as stark to me, and the fireplace feels like it needs to be more than just a flat wall of stone, because after all, it is a major focal point of this home. But overall, i think it is a very impressive work of contemporary architecture.

    The two tiny steel columns that are supporting that giant wooden box are annoying the hell out of me.

    Whats more pretentious? This place or a poorly executed, builder-designed cookie-cutter home found all across America,built to make you look like and fit right in with everybody else of a certain income level? Creativity is not necessarily pretentious.
