qEstes/Twombly's multiple award-winning Cyronak House on Block Island combines a modern, open plan - so suitable for the way most families live today - with time-tested local materials; sliding barn doors enclose a small courtyard entry and protect it from north winds, while to the south a small deck catches summer afternoon breezes. The pair of simple two-story blocks that comprise the Danevic House are turned at right angles and pulled apart to make outdoor spaces and take advantage of different views. A latticework tower joins them, acting as a transition between indoors and outdoors, the private and public realms. Sumptuous photography, charming drawings, and detailed plans fully illustrate Estes/Twombly's commonsense design solutions. Author William Morgan s opening essay traces the firm's development and situates their work in both regional and historical contexts.Author William Morgan s opening essay traces the firma#39;s development and situates their work in both regional and historical contexts.
