Colts Neck, NJ 1

This is a large Country Style French house on a larger lot! It is about 285' long; or almost as long as a football field! There is a great sense of informality to the plans and elevations. One of the things our client asked was that the house be "Bright and happy" inside. As our reaction to this, the plans design was 'pulled apart' so there are many areas that the light floods in. Also, each main axis in the house has a window at the end to enhance the feeling of light flowing into and around the house! As you move through the plan; through the double helix stair, the 20 x 30 foot Dining room and the series of different volume spaces, the house is almost always bathed in morning and evening light!
