On the outside, Meadow House 2.0 is a gracious Shingle-style structure built to blend quietly into its suburban neighborhood. On the inside, sleek, sculptural spaces speak to the cosmopolitan character of its owners. Within an overall palette of whites and grays, expressive details are articulated by variations in tone, texture and surface reflectivity. Artisanal details abound, including a spectacular glass-and metal partition whose intriguing glints and shadows enliven the division between central hall and living room.
The home backs up to scenic conservation land, so maximizing its connection with nature was important. Banks of windows allow in floods of light, and the walls of an attached sunroom virtually disappear when sliding doors on three sides are thrown open. A Deco-inspired hidden bar in the family room, revealed by a sliding panel, includes a two-inch poured-glass countertop filled with tiny, effervescent bubbles.
