Kayafas Architects received the 2003 American Institute of Architects Honor Award;For Excellence in Craftsmanship for this custom home completed in August of 2002

The client’s desire was to create a unique home utilizing natural materials in a natural setting. An artful play of wood and stone was desired to be used in combination with a metal roof to emphasize simplicity and clean lines. The interior finishes were to be warm and emphasize natural materials. Views to the exterior and indirect lighting were highly desired to allow as much natural lighting as possible into the home.

The exterior is detailed with a broad overhang supported by solid cedar brackets and timbers.A cultured “ledge stone” veneer reinforces the horizontal lines and connection to the natural surroundings. Experienced local craftsmen were utilized to showcase their talents on this custom Kayafas home. The solid oak staircase balustrade detailing is carried throughout the interior casework and even in the window grids.The vaulted great room ceiling topped with a clearstory presents an opportunity to feature a pseudo heaver timber frame roof structure.This award winning custom home was a pleasure to design and detail. The end result is a one of a kind Kayafas Architects masterpiece
