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.
