JMA mediterranean-patio


Home built by JMA (Jim Murphy and Associates); designed by Taylor Lombardo Architects. Photo credit: Chris Larrance.

A true Italian villa built in the foothills of Kenwood. This home was built using insulating foam blocks filled with concrete on all the exterior walls. We then plastered the interior and used a combination of stones to create a home that looks as if it is hundreds of years old. The effect is magnified by adding cast stone columns, stained concrete floors and distressed woodwork. The project includes the main home, separate garage with workout room, and two cabanas built on each end of an infinity edged pool.
