our kessler woods home

"The Akers' residence was designed to be a retreat and a sanctuary in the forest. Starting with the bridge entry sequence accessing a split level foyer, the house transitions--both physically and conceptually--from work to life and from culture to nature. The exterior material choices follow this same transition from heavy to light as the interior spaces change from public to private. The dining room deck was designed to delicately approach the beautiful pecan tree as an expression of respect toward nature and as the final resolution of the balance between culture and nature." - Hammers + Partners
