The home was designed by T.W. Ryan studio, based in San Francisco, for a family of four. It is entirely made by materials which are typical of Colonial-style architecture, such as brick, stone, copper and wood.

In fact, the three iconic chimneys themselves are a nod to the chimneys found in the very first colonial homes of the area. The client wanted to pay a homage to the style of the place.

The house is conceived around a series of blocks, such as the residential wing or the guest house. The roof is totally made of copper, towered by the three chimneys that reach the height of 30 feet.

The interiors are modern and simple, with interesting details such as a double-height ceiling or a fireplace built right into the white structure that becomes the chimney on the outside.
