Talent House

2007 Private residence remodel - Design: John Harpster

My intention was to infuse the interior of this home with natural light by raising the ceilings and creating window walls on both sides of the house. From the original 1950’s ranch design—too small and too confining—I wanted to design an interior with more generous spacing , pleasing sightlines and a better flow. Natural elements of wood, stone and plaster-like finishes were key to complimenting the extraordinary pastoral setting of the home.


“John turned what we called our “dark rectangle of a home” into our dream house. I can say with confidence that anyone who would choose to work with John would have a great experience from start to finish.”
