This modern single-family residence is located on a sloping semi-rural site located in Orange, Ohio. It was designed for a young professional couple and their charming young daughter, who requested clean and casual modern living spaces with lots of natural light and open views to the protected backyard area. The house is massed as two separate living wings, intersecting in a “T” configuration. The main living wing is approximately a story and a half tall, and contains the living, dining, and kitchen zones of the home, while the two-story bedroom and service wing anchors the southern border of the site.
The house exterior is clad in a combination of cement stucco and cedar wood slats with flat membrane roofs and aluminum clad wood windows and doors. The construction of the residence was completed by Payne & Payne Builders in 2015
