Creating a forever home, especially one that is meant to serve as a cherished family legacy, requires a confident, timeless approach rooted in smart design and investment choices. Designing for generations means prioritizing longevity — both in terms of material durability and lasting aesthetic appeal. It’s the art of choosing what is always right.
To do that, our clients enlisted the talents of Alec Tesa, AIA, taste and Horan Building Company. We were fortunate to beginourdesignworkbefore the original house was even removed from the site, creating a formidable and well-coordinated team from the start.
As a result, thoughtful and custom elements were able to be included throughout the house. From the herringbone flooring at the entry, to the mahogany divided light doors to the marble and the glass and tilework in the master bathroom this traditional shingle style home delights at every turn. The client’s commitment to long-term joy resulted in a mahogany-clad office for him, a sunny morning room for the family to gather now and future grandchildren’s quarters and a playroom to run free even in the finest of homes.
