CHAPEL HIL, NC
The Farmington project is unique in that it was built for a former NBA player and his family. Everything had to be scaled bigger than normal – for example, there is no door in the house that is smaller than 3′ by 8′. Since it is a family home, the owners wanted people of all ages and sizes to feel comfortable. There was a lot of design consideration to keep everything to scale without making others feel dwarfed. One of the most interesting design elements in the house is the curved staircase, which allows the husband (who has large shoes) to walk on the outside of the stairs, and everyone else to use the side by the railing.
