  • "A new dynamic is added to the living space when it has a relationship to natural and its surroundings" I created a series of spaces that are distinct yet unified and connected to the nature.
    Each area has its own "nature". The great room has a side yard, the master suite has the private backyard and the guest/ family room has an interior Feng shui patio. Big openings, bi-fold doors and plenty of skylights makes the interior feels like you are part of nature.

    There is a multi-functional room that allow you to get more of the square footage. One day it will be an office, the next it could be a T.V. room and when a guest is visiting, the doors are closed and the space will be transferred to a guest room.

    Choices and flexibility is the key to a comfortable home.

    My goal in this project was to design a house that is Kids oriented and still Modern, warm and comfortable for a lovely young family.
