Netsch Residence has been selected as a finalist in the 48th Annual Interior Design Competition. Of the 12 finalists, six winners and one 'Best of Competition' will be announced during the Virtual Celebration on Wednesday, June 30th.

Originally completed in 1974 by architect Walter Netsch, the Netsch Residence appears as a deceptively simple box from the outside, but contains a rich variety of spaces within, with multiple interior levels connected by open-riser stairs. After Netsch’s wife passed away in 2013, the new owners sought to return the house, in spirit, to its original beauty. 

Careful restoration was required to renew selective elements and enhance the expansive sense of movement, materiality, and light within the small space. Working with the new owners, the design team sought to maintain this unique spatial experience while transforming the space into a fully functioning and usable home that would suit the new owners’ lifestyles and aesthetic.
