“The goal was to create a fun, casual space for the family who wanted an all-season house. It’s about defining spaces for the lighter side of life,” says the designer. “They needed a place where different families could come together and have cool spaces for the kids to hang out.” Kline decided early in the process that the design direction would be light and bright; they would bring in contrast through the architecture with dark windows and black metal accents and choose interesting light fixtures to give it a modern feel. Whimsy meets function and order where a ski-lift chair becomes seating in a mudroom and a field house features a basketball court and a media room. Custom three-tiered built-in bunk beds provide multiple sleeping areas for the kids, and a sleek upstairs billiard room offers more recreational activity.
