Because the architects wanted to showcase the view of one of the more majestic oaks on the property, they placed a lap pool below the tree so the mirror-like surface of the water would gracefully reflect its image.

The kitchen also comes with a lovely view of the pool, seamlessly integrating the interiors with the exteriors.

"The design separates public and private space by a covered, but external walkway," note the team.

The backyard was terraced and the pool was redesigned. It went from a 14'x36' standard pool to a 18'x50' saltwater gunite structure with a hot tub terraced above it.
