SMoCA Director Tim Rodgers' Thoughtful, Eclectic, and Locally Designed Home

Tim Rodgers understands that a home like his isn't for everyone. After seeing (and lusting after) the compelling architectural forms of his current residence two and a half years ago, the director of SMoCA knew it would be just the right house for him and his partner Jeff Halakal.

Since the couple moved into the place two months ago, they've made their aesthetic imprint on the place using antiques from the 1600s as well as high-modern, minimalist furnishings.

With a wall of oleander bushes hiding the house from the street, entering the property feels like a retreat. At the entrance, cleanly clipped vines frame the large, open 10-foot tall windows.
