The oculus skylights were original, but the archi- tects swapped out their acrylic covering for low-E glass with better performance and clarity. The largest one illuminates the main stair, bringing natural light in through the center of the house. Last but not least, an informal family area occupies the lowest level. More built-ins keep things just as tidy as else- where in the house, with several sections flipping down into work tables for crafts and other activities. At the back is a media room that terminates in a work of art—a gel-lit depiction of cherry blos- soms that remain forever in bloom. "When we first built this house, people were still leaving the city for the suburbs," Larry recalls. "You can live a lot better in the city these days—all you need is a little bit of nature." –S.C.C. 53 VOL. 2, 2018 RESIDENTIALDESIGNMAGA ZINE.COM
