Just as the pools run perpendicular to one another at the back of the house, the crisscrossing elements of the walkway and concrete support structures have a similar geometry. The hillside yard features small paving stones that provide a design element as well as a structure that controls rainwater flow and erosion.
Beyond the pool area, the house makes the most of its surroundings by using native plant materials that not only fit with the landscape, but are also very low maintenance. This is particularly good for dry summers when native plantings are sturdier. The concrete construction uses a large amount of glass to capitalize on the views and bring plenty of light into the interior of the home.
Once upstairs, a marvelous vista unfolds. The bedroom has an expansive private deck area and amazing view. A glass wall that open to the deck features voluminous drapes for privacy and darkness. The space overlooks the grassy courtyard and main pool deck below.
The overall design is defined by strong and obvious curves, featuring a V-shaped floor plan that frames a courtyard with its wings. The interior spaces seamlessly flow together, featuring curved walls, dividers and even gently arched ceilings. There’s nothing standard about this house yet you wouldn’t really be able to tell that by looking at it from the street, mainly because it’s difficult to even spot it from there.
