A couple that shares a deep lifelong love of music have commissioned this home in a rural setting that features a living room designed to function as a performance space for musicians and vocalists. The space will accommodate a piano, an organ, and a small crowd of appreciative guests. When music or voice lessons are happening in this space, a remote bedroom wing offers sanctuary and privacy. It also defines an outdoor living area that frames beautiful distant views to the east, welcoming morning light, sheltering the space from wind, and creating a shade garden in the heat of the afternoon. The images are intentionally abstracted to direct our attention to the primary forms of the architecture and exterior spaces.
