The rear exterior, with its nature-inspired grand patio
and large curved windows, is a beautiful representation of art nouveau style, one of Marc Whitman's main sources of architectural inspiration. Another source of inspiration are other artists and architects who build organic structures, such as Antonio Gaudí and San Diego artist James Hubbell.When you're designing your home, Marc advises, spend time in other spaces to find out what you like and what is comfortable to you. "Take time and contemplate what you love," he says. "Everyone is different. Trust in yourself."
