Orley Residence

A dramatic site with an ambitious family program necessitated the careful compositions of elements for this luxury home in historically sensitive Franklin. The owners requested a solution in the manner of the English Arts and Crafts traditions for this home along the bank of the Franklin River.

Nestled here, the home boasts prominent gable forms and bowed windows to coherently organize the interior spaces and the circulation spaces linking them.

Meticulous craftsmanship clearly expresses the design intent to blend a modern lifestyle program with a 19C architectural aesthetic.
