BraytonHughes Design Studios

The design concept for this home was to provide a contemporary interpretation of a Parisian townhouse in San Francisco. Both cars and people enter into an interior “carriage court.” The house provides luxurious living quarters for the family of six, including a rear yard lap pool.

The lush, manicured terraces enourage guests to wander and mingle--but the pool remains the centerpiece for a great party. Still, it's no less appealing for the solitary than it is the social--what a sanctuary!
