PROJECT UPDATE: The Marais House – our latest Pittsburgh modern home design – is now under construction on a beautiful cattail creek just north of the city. Inspired by Monet’s large-format landscape paintings, the entire home is designed to accentuate rear views of the creek.
We achieve this through a 24-foot-long foldaway door system that, when open, creates a widescreen viewing portal from the common area out over the patio, with the creek serving as a stunning backdrop. The result is a flowing indoor/outdoor living experience at one with nature.
Set on a 3-acre lot, this Pittsburgh modern home is a private retreat with a refined, earthy aesthetic and clean forms. The home is distinctly modern, reflecting the tastes of its future owners – a well-known creative director and his wife. The Marais House features a 3,000-square-foot, lifestyle-driven layout created for two.
The main living areas include just two bedrooms – a junior suite on level one and a 1,000-square-foot owner’s suite that occupies the entire second floor. There is also a library and an office, and while the front elevation is quiet and discreet, the back is wide-open, with generous outdoor living space and large picture windows.
