The “Rike Residence” is a collaboration between Baldinger Architectural Studio and Jim Rike, a contractor, with whom we have had a long and successful professional relationships.

The house is a cubist raw structure of Concrete, Steel and Glass, designed as laboratory and a container for an uninhibited living and entertaining environment.

The house flows spatially, horizontally and vertically, interconnecting the various activity centers as well as the outdoor spaces.

The end result is a masculine composition of exposed steel, concrete, wood, mechanical and electrical equipment executed in a monochromatic palate of material to serve as a back drop to a rich and eclectic art and furniture collection.
