DeLuise ResidenceSubmitted by Architectural Workshop
The DeLuise residence is located on a private airport. The master suite and the main living spaces form two wood-box wings framing a courtyard with a pool and hot tub. The kitchen and garages build the masonry back spine. An all-glass atrium separates the residence from an all-metal-clad airplane hangar.
The exposed steel structure allows for an open floor plan and extensive use of glass throughout. Features like two-sided fireplaces, large glass doors and windows also help connect outdoors and indoors. Sliding doors disappear into pockets, opening up the kitchen to the courtyard patio barbeque area, along with large, folding-glass doors at the main living space.
Bamboo floors and ceilings, as well as shoji doors, add to the contemporary Japanese feel. Large format travertine complements wenge wood cabinets and glass tiles in the kitchen and bathrooms.
