The project replaces a 2-car garage and indoor pool house with a new lavish spa, multipurpose lounge, guest house as well as a 4-car garage. The initiative is to integrate new indoor living spaces with a new landscaped terrace with pool, hot tub and outdoor dining experience.
An outdoor covered walkway was re-invented as indoor glass link connecting the new addition and main house and also providing a secondary entrance to the home. The glass walls help retain the notion of an outdoor experience while providing a year round connection between the two separate living areas.
In the addition, the ground floor layout offers a Scandinavian like atmosphere, featuring a fitness room, massage room, and steam room in addition to a large versatile gathering room with full amenities for food preparation and indoor lounging. With the patio doors open, the rusticated stone piers transform the west facing rooms into a continuous arcade expanding out onto the pool terrace and providing an uninterrupted connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. As a result spaces within the arcade also benefit from shade and shelter during warm summer months.
The guest house component is concealed from the streetscape within a copper roofscape and accessed via glass link connecting two separate suites on the second floor. The living spaces reveal themselves on the west elevation with sliding glass walls tucked below generous roof awnings for shade and privacy. The guest house is strategically positioned on the 2nd floor to optimize privacy and views out onto the grove of evergreens. 2 Large upper roof terraces offer expanded vistas of the pool and property below.
