This long and relatively thin residence embodies the lifestyle of Southern California. It brings together the house, garden and pool in such a way that the barriers between them are almost seamless; a real connection with the indoors and the outdoors. The exterior has been made of rather beautiful light olive coloured façades, with lots of windows to add interest and more importantly, to add light into the interior. Large sliding doors give access to a narrow length of the court and swimming pool providing a excellent bond between the inside and the outside. The interior of the house is simple, elegant and eclectic with a mixture of traditional, contemporary and ultra-sleek styling.
