The OZ Residence was designed by Swatt Miers Architects and is located in Silicon Valley, California. According to the brief given by the owners, a young couple with two children, the home had to have a casual, barefoot feel, like a holiday destination, with strong indoor-outdoor connections. Here is more from the architects: “The design that evolved is based on a simple ?L? shaped plan with two wings. The east wing includes the kitchen and family room on the ground floor, with children?s bedrooms located on the upper level. The south wing consists of an office, media room, and guest suite at the lower level, with the master suite located on the second floor. Connecting the two wings is a living / dining ?great room?, fully glazed on the north and south sides. Under a low, cantilevered overhang, a solid mahogany pivoting entrance door opens to the dramatic ?great room?, a beautiful two-story volume pierced by a floating glass bridge that runs east-west, connecting the two wings at the upper level“. We invite you to have a look at the photos taken of this home and tell us if you consider its design fits the clients’ brief. [Photography by Tim Griffith]
