JK House sits upon a gentle slope overlooking a field of newly planted walnut trees. In order to take advantage of this view, its private spaces are situated parallel to the exposures, while the public spaces are situated perpendicular to them, resulting in a home with a T-shaped plan.
The house features a restrained material palette overall, including concrete floors, plaster walls, and a wood volume in the main living space. This area of the home has a large, glazed façade with immaculate views onto the property and beyond. The central volume in the vaulted main space contains the kitchen, pantry, laundry, and mudroom storage. As for the private wing of the home, the space is composed of four bedrooms with bathrooms opposite, and a two-car garage. The exterior is clad in standing seam metal siding on the roof and walls, with windows coordinating in alignment with the standing seam to create a proportionally and aesthetically agreeable home, situated bucolically and humbly on its small hill.
