The Marshes have created a new home near the lake both compatible with its traditional surroundings and modern in its simplicity of line. Its clean symmetrical architecture refers back to the Roman villa tradition of David Adler's 1916 Pike house nearby. The residence is sited on a relatively small infill lot, but unlike many other houses on smaller lots, it reflects an economy in composition creating a presence well beyond its modest scale. Its proportions are well suited to the site, establishing a comfortable and balanced sense of space. This artist's residence also features a stylish walled-in courtyard with a handsome sculpture contrasting attractively against the home's lightly toned walls.
