"The facade at the rear of the residence, frequently the site of weekend entertaining, is marked by varying ceiling heights and newly expanded windows and doors. “The house was an empty shell when we found it—very streamlined,” recalls the architect. “We respected that while putting our stamp on it. It’s earthy and natural but also mature and refined.”
"Outdoor shower is surrounded by solid-ipe planking, which the architect selected not only for its appearance but for its strength and durability."
