Taking advantage of the lot’s lush greenery and blurring the lines between the interior and the exterior became our number one design goal.

Because this property sits on a corner lot, it allowed for more open space and sun exposure,” Ricardo says. “This meant we had to be very mindful of the quality and craftsmanship of all the varied materials we used for the exterior facade. It also meant we needed attractive landscapes with varied sight lines to create an element of privacy.

A breezy tropical style balanced with a sleek modern edge seamlessly flows from the facade to an interior presentation that is at once contemporary and livable. Stephanie chose an earth-tone palette paired with stone, wood, and other natural materials.
