The front door includes the first in the series of outdoor patios. This one is typically southern in that it has the necessary elements of a covered porch and room for seating. It is a nod to southern hospitality as it welcomes visitors and serves as a spot where the homeowners can sit and interact with the neighborhood.
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.
The house takes advantage of a vertical structure and features a spiraling staircase that gracefully links all the floors and merges the spaces in a very elegant manner. On the ground floor, there’s an open living area that opens to the courtyard through sliding glass doors, overlooking the riverbed and the distant landscape. On one side of the floor plan you can see the kitchen, concealed inside this white shell. It’s both open and closed, making the most of the curved wall that surrounds it.
Look to the originality of the bold, angular roof lines that are so prominent in modern design—these are very unique. Everything from the vaulted ceilings, to the exposed structural elements, to the unusual linear elements— all equate to a unique, artistic design that you cannot help but be amazed by.
