I recently saw this in Metropolitan Home and completely fell in love with the minimal treatment and simple floorplan. The color palette is spare and elegant, which matches the architecture perfectly.
‘We kept asking, ‘How do we simplify?'” Project architect Carly Coulson explains that they did not pre-wire or place ducts in the block walls. “This was one of those things that Kevin felt was too constraining on design development to determine at the beginning of construction,” she says. “The sensitive decisions he made concerning construction sequence had a very positive impact on the design process and the final aesthetic.” Clearly, process is Streeter’s passion. Even with 20-plus years as a builder, he keeps challenging himself. “One of Michael Graves’s project architects once said, ‘Make everything look like you thought about it,'” he says, thoughtfully. “We do that for our clients, and here I could practice that for myself.”‘
