Privacy was a major driver for the design, plus a desire to bring the resort-like atmosphere as experienced by our clients throughout their travels. Embedded into the site are utility spaces including an expansive garage, which allows for the main level to be graciously elevated above street level.

The light-filled kitchen, living, and sleeping areas on the main level wrap around an intimate pool deck, ensuring complete privacy. The exterior of the home is finished with a deep-toned palette of fiber cement panels and charred Accoya wood siding surrounding steel-trimmed ribbon windows.
