"A Carlo Scarpa drawing is full to the edges, with no opportunity for insertion; so too is this home. The devil may be in the details, but in this case the detailing has enabled the basics to work. For the client family, the overall composition works on many levels, from the stair that compresses the entry through to the dark steel room that allows the mind to escape. The exterior cladding enlivens the house's suburban context and transforms the relationship between landscape and architecture."
