Haddonfield house designed by Krieger + Associates Architect is an 8,000 square foot house, on a gently sloping, three-acre lot adjacent to a golf course. The vision was to create the home as a central gathering place for the extended family, with plenty of play space for kids and indoor/outdoor entertaining. Also, the design emphasizes natural light, an open floor plan, and contemporary style.

The basic design is a spacious central living and entertaining space sort of like a large glass cube, flanked on either side by “house-shaped” wings with cedar shingle siding. Kitchen and dining occupy adjacencies on the first floor, along with guest quarters on the opposite side. Flowing outdoors is a covered dining space. Besides, terracing down is a pool and sport court, on axis with the central cube. Upstairs, the two gabled forms connected by a bridge through the double-height living room below. These two volumes provide separate privacy, with the parent’s suite on one side, and kids’ bedrooms on the other. Below the living room is a well-lit basement, loosely programmed for flexibility. Large light wells provide ample daylight as well as desirable cross breezes.

In addition to this, materials chosen for long life with minimal maintenance required. Hence, ensuring the family’s long enjoyment of their new home. Without a doubt, this house is an ideal place for the extended family who like gathering, enjoy life and spend time together.

Text by the Architects: In returning to their hometown to raise a family, our clients sought to create a new modern home that would be an inviting and spacious gathering place for extended family. Also, room to spread, indoors and out, was a requirement.  The couple purchased a three-acre lot adjacent to a golf course, with established trees, long views, and adequate privacy.
