ELLIS RIVER HOUSE
This home sits on the edge of a steep embankment overlooking the Ellis River. A huge two story window wall with arched tops reflects the tree branches of the dense woods above the river. Other walls with curvilinear forms inspired by the elegant curves of a classic piano ascend up through an opening in a large balcony. This balcony was created to house a tracker organ designed specifically for the client. The main floor and balcony together can hold about seventy people to enjoy musical concerts. Along with having impeccable acoustics from all vantage points, this home offers the client a cozy intimacy for everyday living.
