Wood, Stone, Water is a dramatic, award-winning custom home by Gelotte Hommas Architects. Its most engaging features are the ubiquitous wooden beams that encase the interior of the home. Below are three spaces where these beams are best utilized:

  • The upstairs hallways showcase a dynamic combination of wood and stone. The ceilings in this home appear to go on forever thanks to exposed support beams and the open nature of the upstairs level. The crisscrossing beams that support the ceiling elegantly intersect the giant stone wall that stands in the middle of the home. The wall provides a strong contrast to the light and airy feeling the wood evokes.
  • The dramatic cathedral ceiling creates an awe-inspiring effect. Rows of pillars and beams symmetrically frame the main living area of the house. The open, two-storied living area has several beams that run from the bottom of the room, all the way to the top, highlighting the impressive height of the ceilings. Large windows in the space connect the room with the light and nature outdoors.
