site. The house was designed by our office and built by Paul Kobey in 1999. The house was sold to its current owner after a few years. They then purchased a 35'x125' adjacent parcel and asked us to design a gym addition. This resulted in a dramatic multi-level space that makes a beautiful private gym, but would also make an excellent art gallery should the next owners be serious collectors.
