Client Goals

The clients imagine a ring-shaped house with a central courtyard overlooking the hills and valleys beyond their property. They wanted a contemporary house with a “Smart Look”, suited for family living, long term guests’ quarters and comfortable spaces for large gatherings.


At the entry foyer, mirrors triplicate the floor one quarter round marble pattern, creating a full circle design while also reflecting the views of the adjacent hillside. Wood paneling at doorways denote the transition from space to space and scalloped vaulted ceilings emphasize the ring effect of the design as shown in the breezeway.

Rooms open to the interior courtyard as well as the 300-degree view, letting the natural light in every space as the sun moves through the day.

Whimsical details like the fireplaces’ design, cabinetry, powder room custom faucet waterfall fountain or as in the labyrinth floor pattern at the interior court yard, add to the uniqueness of the home.
