Named after the small birds that inhabit the lot, Surround Architecture‘s Chickadee House blends clean, modern design with the timeless style of natural materials, including stone walls that are remnants of the site’s past.
The house is comprised of two structures, the main house and the garage, which are connected by a glass-covered breezeway. The layout maximizes the connection to the outdoors with the use of lift slide, bi-fold, and Dutch doors throughout. This gives plenty of visibility to the neighborhood’s mature trees, apple orchards, and mountain wildlife.
The bright, simple, and functional interior spaces are also accented by natural materials such as wide-plank French oak floors, limestone masonry, and finished timbers. Use of blackened steel beams and architectural concrete add to the modern look while helping the home create a serene, peaceful environment.
