This project was unique for Benjamin + Co., with its tight urban lot and soaring heights. We rose to the challenge, and working with a great project team all around, constructed a beautiful home including several decks with extraordinary views, extensive custom built-ins, and an amazing stairwell fashioned with powder-coated steel and ash woodwork. The crown jewel is the fourth floor writer’s office with sweeping city and seaside views. Material selection was focused on the clients’ goals of efficiency and low-maintenance living and included fiber cement siding, aluminum-clad/triple glazed windows, and a SIPS panel wall system.
