Skilken  
Steve Skilken Residence, Columbus, Ohio 1996-1999

Steve Skilken first came to see me after seeing several of my previous designs. He was particularly taken with the house I designed for Joe and Etsuko Price in Corona del Mar, California and told me he wanted the same design. I told him that I do not repeat designs made for others but would consider his situation and work out an idea for him. One of the things he very much liked about the Price house were the groups of beams that formed individual pods in that house and he asked whether there was not some way to incorporate some variation on this idea into his design. This was done in a way very different from the Price house though giving a similar effect which pleased Mr. Skilken. His program otherwise consisted of having a house that was essentially a tropical garden with a lap pool running through it. Another unusual requirement was the need for a heliport and interior storage for his helicopter.
