Created out of a desire for on-site training facilities, this newly built contemporary home features a 75-foot-long lap pool, an exercise room with two stationary bikes and a floor-to-ceiling window that let these triathlete homeowners take in the views while training.
The front of the house is set back far from the street to create a long driveway that increases the sense of privacy. The rustic stone wall provides additional privacy and creates a contrast to the sleek lines of the rest of the home. Architect David Webber calls the home’s roofline a “scorpion’s tail.” It features an inverted flip at the front of the house that is designed to collect rainwater and direct it toward a series of gutters.
The exterior of the house is white stucco and the roof is metal. Vertical wood slats, or louvers, in front of some of the windows are both functional and stylish. “The two-story volume faces east and west, so it is important to have a tall screen to mitigate intense sunlight,” Webber says. “And it became a nice detail, repeating at the entry and in other places throughout the house.”
