With most of the house’s floor plan only one room deep, Montenegro and his colleagues were able to incorporate windows on multiple sides of each room, maximizing light.


Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro Architects may have added interior design to their scope on the Caruth residence, but the firm relied on the professionals at Bonick Landscaping to create the outdoor environment, which includes a limestone gravel patio and a black steel fire pit that overlooks the pool. “We met with the owner and architects to understand the architecture of the home, materials being used, and how the owner envisioned using their outdoor spaces,” president Glenn J. Bonick says.

For its first foray into in-house interior design, Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro Architects balanced the classic context of the city’s University Park neighborhood with the modern feel the owners wanted for their single-family home. “It has a very traditional palette of materials, yet they’re done in a way that’s clean, contemporary, and minimal,” principal architect Enrique Montenegro says. The design team customized the roughly 7,000-square-foot space with local limestone details, understated light fixtures, and an airy, monochromatic color scheme.

Consolidating interior and architectural design decisions under one roof resulted in some creative collaborations: Among other unique features, the floor plan is anchored with a one-of-a-kind wine room with backlit shelving to display premium vintages. “The best projects,” Montenegro says, “are the ones where everybody’s on the same page.”
