For this Asian inspired home, designers wanted to create a space that was open, inviting and connected. To create that feeling between the upper and lower floors, a glass paneled balcony wall was installed to allow light and eyesight to pass between floors. To keep the space bright and open, a skylight was put in place in the ceiling, adding a warm ambience to the home's two spaces.
A set of grass covered steps leads from the main house down to the paddocks and barn area. To define this feature from the lower level, natural stone was added to the face of the steps. This addition allows for a pop of color in the landscaping as well as creates a separation between upper and lower spaces.
This infinity swimming pool is the centerpiece of this dramatic yard. The upper and lower natural stone patios give depth to the entertaining space. The hot tub below adds to the ambiance for evening entertaining.
