Designed for a family seeking a quiet, unassuming home, Ruxton Rise Residence by studiofour is something quite special. More than just a physical space, studiofour created a home that celebrates the beauty found in simplicity. The residence is accessed via a discreet, narrow stairway that leads to a peaceful inner courtyard—around which the living spaces have been arranged. Expansive windows and abundant natural light have a restorative effect, while the selection of honest materials and grey muted tones provide a sense of calm throughout. With a clear emphasis on quality, the residence was designed to acquire a beautiful patina with age.
