The design sought to integrate beautifully with the landscape which was designed by Alex Hanazaki. Glass walls reveal different vistas which showcase the magical gardens created by Alex. At the front façade, a green wall draws those arriving toward the front entry where a beautiful wood panel door beckons entry.
The other side of the home opens onto the garden and expresses a very geometric and elegant elevation. Concrete and white finishes are artfully alternated in the various volumes. The glazing has been located to, both, offer incredible views of the garden and compose a refined facade.
The house opens onto an impressive patio. Lounge seating is shaded by the overhang and provides a respite from the summer heat. Complete with outdoor fireplace, a sunken sitting area and an infinity pool—there's not much more you could ask for in the way of outdoor living!
