This house was designed & constructed by the architect, including 100% of all interiors. The clients did not want the front facade of the building to appear too large. The house is approximately 7,500SF , but you would only realize that by viewing the rear facade and after walking through the house.

All of the exterior window surrounds are custom for each window....there are 22 different window surround types. It was decided to trim the outside of each window as if it were being detailed on the inside. The material is a man made plastic product, wood grained to appear as wood.

This sun rooms super structure is comprised of 12" poured & insulated concrete foundations and structural steel frame with steel decking. It is clad in plastic custom shaped panels, wood graine...More

This is the rear facade of the house. The pergola is solid mahogany which matches the spiral stair. There is a fire pit located at the upper deck, as well as one located inside the sun room. The interesting thing about this house is that the front facade hides the real girth of the house, as is seen with the rear facade photo.....something the homeowners specifically requested ...More

This gate leads to the 1st floor sun room deck, directly above. The security gate is constructed for protection but is integral to the design features used throughout on other iron elements. The mahogany spiral stairs match the mahogany material which the upper decks pergola is made of. This is the view looking out of the window from the theater.

The theater screen is a drop down & the rear projection unit drops down out of the ceiling coffer behind the head of the bed.....Many of the cherry raised panels are storage ports. The railing assembly at the head of the bed is completely custom made with each balustrade being separately turned.

This is the lower level of a large residence wherein the owners wanted to create a theater but with a large lounging bed instead of the traditional theater seating. Pet ramp allows for the love of the home to join it. All windows are smart house controlled for backing out during showings..

This coffered ceiling was difficult to define because the ceilings were only nine feet at this location. The fixture selection was perfect for a shallow space such as this transition space. The spread of light is truly beautiful.

Prior to the archways, this area was simply a wall & door leading to the lower level. We added the minor arch at the table & created a series of archways which stand alone. It didn't bother me that they converged upon one another. The gates are pet related to control there movement.
