“I think the idea of the ‘domestic spa’ was important. If you view your home as a sanctuary, every opportunity should be taken to emphasize those values.”Vivian Lee, Edmonds + Lee Architects
A full-service design, development and architecture firm based in San Francisco, Edmonds + Lee Architects has garnered international recognition for its contemporary approach to homes and housing. The Switchback House, which partners Robert Edmonds and Vivian Lee designed for themselves and their two children, explores light, space, plane, material, and the endless possibilities of form.
Edmonds and Lee chose AXOR for the Switchback House. In the bathrooms, they selected faucets from the AXOR Uno collection. Designed by Phoenix, AXOR Uno embodies the Purist ethos of simplicity, reduction to the essential, and self-evident function. “It’s just so clean and pure,” says Edmonds of AXOR Uno. “It’s a perfect reflection of just a faucet – nothing less, nothing more.” In the kitchen, Edmonds and Lee opted for a faucet from the elemental AXOR Starck collection by Philippe Starck. All three collections, Edmond notes, “go together cohesively.”
