The Kennedys work demanding jobs with very different schedules. This, along with the normal challenges of raising a young family, increased their eagerness for a “forever” home. Our charge was to create a new residence located on a large wooded lot in a rural neighborhood, one that considers the needs of a growing family throughout its stages of life. We began by looking at the land, how and where the house would sit on the property. We worked closely with the builder on a master suite solution that allows them to sleep and get ready without disturbing the other. We also designed a future bonus room solution over the garage that the kids now use as a play room—it was fun to watch them play in this space as we were photographing the house. Understanding the challenge and then developing a workable solution for these clients was immensely satisfying.
