Kingsmill Residence

Williamsburg, Virginia

Glavé & Holmes was brought on to demolish the owner’s current house and build a new home on the current home site with water views on three sides. Consistent with their goals, the focus of the project was to craft a gracious flow between the primary rooms of the house while maximizing views out to the water. The design centers around an arrival court with the main house centered and anchoring this paved elegant arrival. Wings on each side contain the more private aspects of the house, each of which were designed to embrace and showcase the family’s collection of art and furnishings collected over many years of travel. The rear of the house flows out to covered porches and a large bluestone, elevated patio which engages with the landscape beyond. Throughout the house, on both levels, rooms have windows and balconies to introduce light and take advantage of the site’s unique water views. This project was done in collaboration with Smith McClane Architects.
