XXOne. Ex-Ex-One. Twenty-One. It doesn't matter to me what you call it, but the name is derived from the fact that this is the first home design after my twentieth anniversary year as a builder, and is an exercise in trying to capture as much of what I've learned about design and to transmit that into a special arrangement of space. It's also designed with the NE16 re-development in mind, an Oklahoma City Urban Renewal - awarded project, where I'm building eight modern styled homes within a single block in an historic neighborhood just outside of downtown Oklahoma City.
The basics of the plan? 3 bed, 2.5 baths, pocket study, and courtyard patio. The garage on this one is a single-car, though depending on lot and location, it could also be built as a two-car space. The elevation takes its form as a mid-century modern inspired design, with crisp-edged gray concrete brick accented by the warmth of stained tongue-and-groove cedar facade materials. And don't forget that bold, red door.
I don't drink beer, but man I love the Natty Light this home is serving up.
From the impressive entry foyer, the space opens into the great room where kitchen and living space merge without definition, though they are both marked with a vast slope-level ceiling that matches the roofline above, and a room-spanning, exposed corrugated HVAC duct. The kitchen takes form in a linear layout, and includes my signature built-in table with modern waterfall ends and seating up to eight. Plenty of countertop and appliance space exists on the impressive cabinet wall, flanked by the sliding glass paneled door to the courtyard, right off the kitchen and perfect for after-dinner entertaining.
Located past the kitchen is a vestibule where the powder bath, garage entry, and hallway intersect. Down the hall, just past the triple-window opening to the courtyard, leads you to ample storage space, a full bathroom, and two extra bedrooms on one side.
Adjacent is the master suite with full connectivity to the utility room from both the hallway and the master closet. The master suite itself is inclusive of a spacious room leading to a luxurious but efficient bathroom retreat with separate sinks, a walk-in doorless shower, and separate toilet room.
At the end of the hallway is a flexible space, that serves both form and function, with an attractive built-in desk with floating shelves, claiming the space as a useful pocket study
The home sits on one of the scenic lots in the block, with an abundance of carefully-preserved mature trees and that filter light throughout the property. | jC
