Croy Residence

A home prioritizing privacy without sacrificing natural light and transparency.

In an unassuming neighborhood, the Croy Residence proves that there is usually more than meets the eye. The main design challenge posed by the client required maintaining a balance of openness and privacy throughout the home. From the street, visitors are met with a fortitude of masonry. Aside from glazing at the entry and a corner office window, the front facade is entirely composed of dark gray brick. Behind a projecting brick feature wall, guests are welcomed with hidden full-height windows — a contrast of open and solid. Even though most exterior walls have limited openings, transparency and openness between spaces are manifested in an introverted way once you enter the home. A mix of walnut, steel, glass, and crisp white creates a home that is warm and inviting upon entry.
