A home should make the most of its terrain.
By using octagonal shapes throughout this home, we were able to
capture the fabulous views throughout.
Pearched on a high hil top, the sitting and landscaping of the house
contribute to the feeling that this house belongs on the site.
The detailed big wall atop a massive stone
foundation gives this English Manor style home a look of permanence.
The design challenge was to design an Old World structure that would
sit comfortably on a beautiful site overlooking the golf course.
Because the home is approached from the left side, the design is
punctuated by a chimney articulated by rotated and dileniated flues.
Each residence is customized from the
owners requirements, desires and dreams. Every home is an original.
A cookie-cutter design could never equal the unique and personalized
feeling of a "truly "custom designed" home.
This house devides into two regions, the
private master bedroom suite area and the social living area that
includes the kitchen, living room and guest areas.
Refinement and close attention to details
bring this home an ambience of comfort and quality. The front terrace
offers a beautiful distant view, while the rear veranda is focused
on a uniquely designed water feature that utilizes a natural stone
Luxurious moldings, specialty woods and a very special staircase
contribute to the ambience. Notice the large bow-windowed breakfast
room. It's my favorite place in the house.
As if plucked from the French countryside,
this home draws on the classic and timeless beauty of craftsmanship
from a time long past. A sense of welcome is expressed by the angled
wings. that embrace you like arms, as approach through the woods.
From the steep roofs with curved eaves, to the classic stonework,
countless details enhanced the design.
This home artfully combines modern luxury
with the charm of an Old World country manor. It was important
to make the outside space became a part of the overall design.
Elegant archways lead you to a walled garden as well as an attatched
guest cottage. The glass conservatory juts out into the garden
area which has a distant view of a lake. The owner’s love
of gardening became a focal point of the design, creating a graceful
and comfortable living space.
The opportunity to design a home in Hawaii
was a welcome challenge. The Balinese style had to be adapted to
the active lifestyle of a young family. Individual pavilions are
connected by gardens so that the family can embrace the tropical
climate. The inclusion of an ofuro, a traditional Japanese bath,
also made this a truly unique design. The breathtaking view from
the living spaces overlooks the infinity edge pool, which seems
to join the ocean beyond.
