Designed by Gregory Ain in 1963, the Kaye Residence was organized as a series of hexagonal spaces with in rectilinear wings. In addition to its over-all restoration, our work involved the reconfiguration of key spaces, and the design of a pool house that remains un-built.
In the master bedroom suite, using the edge of the hexagon as a movement generator, we choreographed a ricochet against a wall of windows, creating a procession from sleeping, to dressing, to bathing.
Residual spaces are in-filled with auxiliary functions, restoring the hexagons as centering yet dynamic stages for the most primary of daily rituals.
In the main living space, we designed in-situ furnishings for opposing sides of the hexagon; to introduce an asymmetrical balance, and to restore a sense of functional intentionality.
