Inspired by recollections of earlier modernism and specifically by detailing in the early houses of Kahn, Schindler and especially Aalto’s Villa Mariea, Madderlake Designs created the house as a work of art. It is a functional abode with equal consideration given to the play of light, and the flow of space, to the abstraction and celebration of form and surface.
It was designed simply and cleanly relying on the natural qualities of the materials themselves and the feel throughout the workman’s hand.
The Conundrum house endeavored to create a home of human scale that speaks to comfort and everyday livability, eschewing a grandiosity pervasive in the region. A relaxing mountain retreat with a separate work studio commissioned by a very active couple and their championship hunting dogs.
The home is meant to be a private retreat, and a family legacy house mandating the use of timeless materials and beautiful workmanship.
