Well Suited

The front of the house retains its original character, but a new master suite looks like a sparkling glass box, with towering windows canting out from the house at a dramatic angle. Nike shoe design is all about speed and motion, Tinker says. “And this slanted-out glass has a certain amount of motion. It’s what helps make the house look different.” “Good architecture doesn’t try to copy the past,” Tinker says, “but contributes to the future. It marries modern shapes, colors, and materials with those that have been with us for 100 years.”
