Modern House
Tina Carrelli and James Wissel
Crazy. What else can one say of a husband-and-wife team of novice builders who, for their first building project together, decide to design an intensely modern house on their own? In the case of Tina Carrelli and James Wissel of Westfield, New Jersey, you can call them courageous dreamers. Their desire to translate a love of cutting-edge minimalism into the house of their dreams prompted an adventure most couples would consider, well, nutty.
