This modern hilltop home was designed to showcase the client’s diverse art collection and unique decor. The home sits on one acre, has an open layout with clean lines and ceiling elevation changes which identify different rooms. Our clients wanted their art to remain a focus throughout the house so subtle materials and colors were used to create a clean slate to highlight their collection. The landscape, architecture and interiors all flow together seamlessly. Living in California, our clients are conscious about saving water so the landscaping is drought tolerant and the plants require little to no water. The same modern and linear style inside the house continues outside with an infinity edge reflection pond surrounded by Gingko trees. A new site drainage system was installed and designed to collect all surface and sub-surface storm water which releases slowly into one of the two dissipation tanks located on the property.
