Water is an integral part of this contemporary home's design. A walkway creates a unique experience as it floats above the water to lead up the floor-to-ceiling glass entryway.

A stacked stone exterior and exposed timber beams create a rustic entrance to this children's playhouse. The arched front door features a round stained glass inset and is flanked by lantern-style sconces. Sandstone slabs are used as the walkway leading up to the front door.
A symmetrical, geometric arrangement of built-in and freestanding planters adds interest to the exterior of this contemporary California home.
