Shreveport a modern masterpiece
A wide wrap-around porch gives a welcoming look to the Shreveport, a contemporary-style home designed for construction on a lot that slopes down to the left and rear. This plan can easily be reversed for a right-sloping lot, or its foundation could be altered for a flat site.
Gathering spaces cluster on the left, bedrooms on the right. The den, or guest room can go either way. Furnished as a den, library or home entertainment center, it could serve as another gathering space. Outfitted as a guest room or home office, it would be more private. (An exterior door could be easily installed.) The walk-in closet will be appreciated no matter how this room is used.
Vaulted ceilings add volume to the gathering spaces, entry and master suite. On the left side of the entry, a wide arch leads into the spacious and richly windowed dining and living room.
The bright, large and comfortable family room/kitchen has an atrium door that opens onto a large elevated deck. Inside, shelves or cabinets capped by multipaned windows flank a homey gas fireplace. Art objects or decorative mementos find a home on the above-window display shelf at the back of the rectangular nook.
There's plenty of room in this kitchen for two or three cooks, and the conversation bar keeps non-cooks out of the way, yet near enough to chat.
Amenities in the Shreveport's master suite include: a skylit walk-in closet, and a private bathroom with double vanity and oversized shower. An exterior door provides direct access to a lower level patio that can be plumbed and wired for installation of a large hot tub, should the owners so choose.
