Created by Hughes Umbanhowar Architects, this is contemporary property style of River Road residence. The house is built on 12,300 square foot residence with swimming pool is placed on the front of the residence. River Road Residence has a very complex composition, reminiscent of the canvases of Georges Braque, in which geometric forms seem and disappear in a continual dance of illusion and materiality. The structure overlooks the water and attributes a series of intimate courtyards and cantilevered decks. It consists of a series of district yet interlocking rectilinear volumes conjoined by a transparent longitudinal axis. A glass-skinned throughway connects and distinguishes the two dominant volumes, or towers, capturing light and adding to the sense of interior capaciousness. The exterior is created of several supplies like glass, limestone, stucco and others. Some of these materials are also used in interior.
Regardless of whether allegro, andante or largo, the varied rhythms of the internal structure are adroitly composed. Denizens move with leisure or efficiency, based on need to have and mood. Interior spaces are very carefully orchestrated to conceal and reveal dramatic views to the water. Surprise and delight are amplified by skillful interior and exterior framing. In the exact same way, the arrangement of system and use moves inhabitants through a logical gradient from public to private space, from activity to slumber, from conviviality to introspection. At either end of the longitudinal axis that connects the two domestic partitions, separate stairways improve circulation and supply discrete access to the three-storied parapets.
The gracious interior is highlighted by the use of Mahogany, Minnesota Limestone, and plaster finishes. Afternoon sun is mitigated by aluminum louvers and astute structural arrangement. The bulthaup kitchen is enhanced by a sliding window wall which opens to an exterior courtyard, additional collapsing the distinction in between exterior and interior space, and thereby underscoring the sense of spontaneous nevertheless calculated arrangement.
