This private residence for a mosaic artist, found in Virginia Seaside, Virginia developed by GRADE. In creating the undertaking, GRADE responded to 2 disparate circumstances of the site: the expansive views of Chesapeake Bay and the mystic wooded location on which it resided. The aim was to reconcile the client’s want for a studio in which to style and develop whilst not rendering the room hermetic and closed off to its surroundings.
GRADE brought nature’s components indoors, establishing a foundation of earthy textures like organic mahogany wood and a curved zinc rooftop, complemented by imported materials this kind of as Italian marble. By way of thoughtful design, the residence became an apparatus for filtering the views of the water, with the curved roof enabling the scale of the beachside room to expand the closer one’s proximity to the bay.
