Design Build Firm
Describe the featured project.
This five-bedroom, nine-bath, modern masterpiece was designed by C&C Partners Design Build for homeowner and developer Ariel Isaacson. Founded 30+ years ago by brothers Patrick Cunningham and Michael Cunningham, the firm has cultivated relationships throughout the luxury custom home industry, including collaborations with other builders and architects that produce stunning results for clients.
The goal was to create a truly contemporary home with a warm, welcoming ambience, avoiding the “art museum” aura some modern homes emit. Yeara Design was brought in to help coordinate the interiors, crafting the overall feel of the house through color and texture. By utilizing natural and organic materials and tones but still keeping the architectural lines clean and precise, this home more than attains the elegant yet homey atmosphere it was striving for.
The 8,166-square-foot dwelling features a spacious master bedroom with his-and-hers bathrooms and more than 175 feet of combined walk-in closet space. Her bath (pictured) utilizes a beautiful lilac marble with purple hues for the shower and countertops, with a freestanding soaker tub and gold accented pendant lights. The oversized floor tiles and sleek cabinetry keep the look contemporary.
All the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and large windows letting in tons of natural light, with reactive engineered wood floors flowing throughout. Three bedrooms include sliders opening to an adjoining deck. A colorful, cozy den is centrally located, with direct access to the front door, sliders that open to the front deck on one side and a courtyard on the other.
The kitchen is as striking as it is functional. The dominant material is a graystone marble imported from Brazil. It is utilized on the countertops, island and back wall, as well as on the front exterior of the home and the backyard built-in barbeque. The contrasting Midnight Garden cabinetry and globe pendant lighting brighten the room, aided by sliders and a retractable glass wall that let the sun shine in while leading directly to the backyard and pool.
A bonus is the basement flex room, with a 250-bottle wine rack and walk-in cooler, pool table, separate dining and entertainment spaces, and a graystone bar with illuminated counter-to-ceiling cabinets. The exposed beam ceiling runs the length of the room, adding warmth and tying the various zones together. This home is a spectacular example of modern living that is cheerful, inviting and promises lots of fun.
What are your favorite sources of inspiration in your work?
When a client expresses the architectural style they desire for their custom home, we do our own research online or through books. How- ever, as part of our design process we also invite clients to share images they have saved for inspiration. From those images, we become enlightened on the true direction of how their home needs to look and feel, and it could possibly be a direction we did not think of ourselves
